A wagon sits in the Northeast Georgia History Center filled with pottery and straw. The wagon, which would have been drawn by a horse or mule, is there to display how the Meaders family would transport pottery to sell from their rural Mossy Creek home to the city of Gainesville. Beside the wagon is a painting by Clarkesville artist John Kollock depicting a family loading up for such a trip.
It's all part of the newest exhibit at the center, "Traditions in Clay: The Folk Pottery of Northeast Georgia."
PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. - If you've been to Pigeon Forge Tenn., you know that go karts, dinner theaters and outlet shopping abound. But there's something new to do in the Smoky Mountains - you can go Zorbing!
SAUTEE - They call it a "dramedy," and "Barefoot in the Park," the last show to appear at Black Bear Dinner Theatre, certainly is a mix of laughter and tears as newlyweds Corie (Katie Deal) and Paul Bratter (Judson Wright) move into their brownstone Manhattan apartment.
SAUTEE - The dressers behind the scenes of "Greater Tuna," now onstage at Black Bear Dinner Theatre in Sautee, deserve an ovation of their own for their back stage work with Judson Wright and Seth Howard.
Not only do the two actors play 20 parts between them, they switch roles so regularly throughout the play it seems like they have cloned themselves.
OAKWOOD - Folk art, or "outsider" art, is created by artists who haven't been formally trained. That's why Alabama artist Ted Whisenhunt is no outsider.
Whisenhunt, whose exhibit "Saints and Haints" opens today at Gainesville State College, said he is the "one man art department" at Judson College in Marion, Ala., where he has been a professor for 10 years.
She grew up in Cornelia and sang in the choir at Demorest Baptist Church.
She still sings the same sweet soprano, but now Kimberly Roads Schlapman performs for much larger crowds as a member of Little Big Town, the group that will share the stage with George Strait on Friday at The Arena at Gwinnett Center.
