A new show will take over Helen Arts & Heritage Center.

“Do You See What I See” will feature the 2-D and 3-D artwork of locals Nancy Ackerman and Mitty Higginbotham arts center.

Nancy Ackerman will showcase her painting and fused glass, which she has worked on for a year.

Ackerman relocated to Helen in 2010, with encouragement from a close friend. She began a brand new chapter in life and soon became involved with the Helen Arts Center. She meet with many local artists and crafters and learned pottery. But she always returned to her first love of painting.

Higginbotham lives in Toccoa and has been drawing since he was a child. Watching his father work on cars, he found a way to incorporate his interest for cars into his art.

Higginbotham has been part of many shows throughout Georgia and has won many awards for his art, including his most recent Gilbert Award from the Helen Arts 2013 Judged Competition.

His current art revolves around the theme of Northeast Georgian moonshiners and local history. His art focuses on car art, rural America and small-town America.
