Pottery exhibit highlights old-world tradition

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."

'Greater Tuna’ drama as good backstage as it is onstage

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.

‘Saints and Haints’ captures spirits of folklore

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.
