Traditional art in oil, watercolor and acrylics as well as modern art such as 3-D images and mixed medium will be in spotlight for the next month at The Bowen Center for the Arts in Dawsonville.

Showcasing their works are three artists: Hall County residents Cynthia Miller and Helene Gardelle and Dahlonega citizen Jim Fambrough. From April 5 to May 4, the exhibit will feature nearly 60 pieces of their combined works. An opening reception will be from 2-4 p.m. Saturday April 5.

Gardelle will be exhibiting her 3-D clay art.

“Working with earth strikes a balance,” she said.

Gardelle’s studies took her from Paris to Germany, Italy and Canada. She has exhibits at the Raiford Gallery in Roswell, and Daedalus Gallery in Savannah.

Miller began art at an early age and studied at the Savannah College of Art and Design. She geared her career toward advertising and graphics, but her fine arts mediums include oils, watercolor and acrylics.

Joining the women is Dahlonega’s Jim Fambrough, who studied at the Pratt Institute in New York City. He worked in the auto industry and owned a business designing for major corporations. He also taught art and design at Georgia Tech and North Georgia College.

Fambrough’s work is layered and mixed with fabrics, cardboard, tissue and acrylics.

The Bowen Center is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and noon to 4 p.m. Saturday at 334 Ga. 9 N in Dawsonville.
