Adults and children use the whole color spectrum
Artwork adorns the walls at Sautee Nacoochee
A small portion of the Ribbon of Color created by the Bee Artful Fiber Group, plus clay art alligators and penguins by the White County Intermediate School students.

Pieces of fabric carefully intertwined create a colorful quilt full of expression while the inspiration springing from children’s minds covers paper and canvas.

Both elements of artwork adorn the wall of the Sautee Nacoochee Galleries as part of the “The Color Spectrum” exhibit.

The Bee Artful Fiber Group is the featured hallway artist while White County Intermediate School students have their pieces displayed in the center.

Twenty members of the Bee Artful, an art quilt subgroup of the Mountain Laurel Quilters’ Guild, are showing their latest group project. The challenge was to use a piece of turquoise fabric, hand-dyed by DeeDee Lewis, in such a way it went from edge to edge. The quilted pieces are all aligned with the turquoise color so the edges of each quilt match, creating a continuous “ribbon of color.”

White County Intermediate School’s exhibit includes paintings and drawings as well as three-dimensional artwork by the students. Mimi White, the school’s art teacher, assembled the work.

The exhibition will run until Nov. 2, at the Sautee Nacoochee Center at 283 Ga. 255 North in Sautee. The center’s hours are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the week, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 1-5 p.m. Sunday.

In addition, The Center Gallery and Gallery Too are filled with many pieces of fiber art, as well as other items such as pottery and sculpture, paintings, watercolors, wood turned art in many forms, lamps, prints, notecards and much more.
