Early examples of Georgian folk pottery such as double-handled syrup jugs, utilitarian bowls and pitchers are on display in a special temporary exhibit Saturday at the Folk Pottery Museum of Northeast Georgia.
The free exhibition features pieces from the private collection of Mr. and Mrs. Tommy Gandy.
Northeast Georgia folk potter Steve Turpin will be at the museum from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. to talk with visitors about the similarities and differences in making and glazing pottery that help determine the origin and heritage of the items. Gandy will be available from 2-3 p.m. to talk about how collectors find and pursue their interests in a particular art form and history.
The Folk Pottery Museum of Northeast Georgia is on Ga. 255, a quarter-mile north of the intersection with Ga. 17, four miles northeast of Alpine Helen.
The Museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 1-5 p.m. Sunday.
