Placeholder Image

"New Beginnings," and The Art of the Faberge Egg & Spring Beauty Fine Art Exhibition, will be on display at the Bowen Center for the Arts from April 5-27.

The community can meet the artists of the International Egg Art Guild from 5-7 p.m. April 5 during a reception at the Bowen Center, located at 334 Ga. 9 N. in Dawsonville.

Artists will show one-of-a-kind eggshells from the tiniest zebra finch to the gigantic ostrich.

Eggshells are purchased from suppliers who sell non-fertile, emptied and cleaned eggshells. The eggs are decorated in Ukranian style or fancy cut, then trimmed with a variety of cords, paints and crystals. To complete the eggs, the artists of Blackberry Creek will exhibit their fine art of "New Beginnings."

Featured artists include Alan Rabon, Ann T. LeGates, Bill Arrington, Carole B. Kjellsen and Dawna M. Godfrey. Featured Blackberry Creek artists include Fay Bohlayer, Betty Beasley, Cheri Burchard, Pat Maloney, Catherine Pichon, Susanne Newell, Mary Ann Cox Sheehy and Dru Stowers.

The Bowen Center is operated by the nonprofit Dawson County Arts Council. For more information, call 706-216-2787 or visit
