5th Annual Dahlonega Art Trail 5/9/2015

5 May

Dahlonega has always been known for the natural beauty of its surrounding mountains and waterfalls and more recently for its wineries. The picturesque historic downtown square is known for its music, shops, and restaurants.

Dahlonega is also becoming known for its art.

This coming weekend, Saturday May 9th, artists will be working around the historic square during the 5th Annual Art Trail. They will be providing a variety of demonstrations from 11 am-4 pm.  The trail can be started anywhere in the downtown area since the artists will be “ringing” all sides of the square. Painters, jewelers and fine crafters will be represented. Some downtown merchants will also be hosting artists in front of their stores. The event is being sponsored by Chestatee Artists Inc – a local art organization.

Artists scheduled to be on hand to provide demonstrations of their work include: oil painters, Wanda Smith, Carole Kennedy, Denise Roberson and Joyce Fox; watercolor artist, Oscar Rayneri; mixed media, Bart Prato; acrylic painter, AJ Wolff; Leather crafts, Tom Slavicek; chainsaw carver, Carl Pirone; folk art wind chimes, Pattie Pirone; jewelry, Paul & Florence Roberts; and stained glass, Letty Rayneri.
