The Northeast Georgia Arts Tour will make a stop at The Gourd Place in Sautee Nacoochee this weekend.
The tour will feature special guest artist Jim Reeves of Atlanta from Nov. 8-10. He also will conduct a demonstration Saturday.
Reeves has been a friend of the owners of The Gourd Place for many years and attended gourd gatherings with his wife, Barbara, and daughters, Kaitlin and Amelia.
Reeves has been a hobbyist photographer and architect for the past 45 years and recently began to develop a unique process for enhancing his photographs. He enhances them initially with a computer program and then prints them on artist papers. Next, Reeves embellishes the photos using watercolor, felt tip pens, ink, and/or pencil.
“Developing this process has allowed me to pursue two passions, photography and sketching,” Reeves said, adding his passion for travel is part of the mix.
His photos are from throughout the United States, primarily the Southeast and West, as well as from the Canadian Rockies, Italy and Chile. His favorite subject includes buildings of character, nature landscapes and a combination of both, as well as flora and fauna.
Priscilla Wilson will give a demonstration in her gourd/pottery workshop at 2 p.m. each day of the tour.
