North Georgia Mountains, Blue Ridge, Hiawassee Art Works Artisan Centre, Handmade Crafts, Fine Art
This weekend I spent some time at The Lodge at Copperhead. They were hosting their first annual Arts & Crafts show and it was a huge success! Local artists displayed some of their finest pottery, gourds, fine art, jewelry, decorative paintings, wood carving, needlwork and so much more.
I got to know Evelyn Gantnier who is an exceptional lady and an extraordinary talented artist. Her original and traditional jewelry designs are handmade and I could not resist purchasing three pair of earrings. Evelyn uses beautiful Swarovski crystals and beads and fine metals such as sterling silver to create her gorgeous earrings and stunning necklaces. Evelyn has her own gallery located at 841 Highway 66 in Young Harris, Georgia. You can reach Evelyn at 706-379-2564.
Mistletoe Market is coming up on Saturday, November 20 and Sunday, November 21, 2010 in the Sugar Plum Tearoom at the North Georgia Technical College in Blairsville where you can meet Evelyn and see her many wonderful designs. Also, other artists and crafters will be on site too. Free admission to the craft show which starts at 9am on Saturday and 11 am on Sunday. Preview Party on Friday, November 19th from 6pm to 9pm - cost is $5.00. Sponsored by The Mountain Regional Arts & Crafts Guild.
Mark your calendar and reserve a room or rent a log cabin at The Lodge at Copperhead for the weekend.
Homemade soup, salads, sandwiches and desserts on hand at the Tearoom or breakfast, lunch and dinner at the award winning restaurant at the Lodge at Copperhead. Make a weekend get-away out of it and enjoy the North Georgia Blue Ridge Mountains.
