Art in the Garden is this weekend

POSTED: May 3, 2013 3:34 p.m.

The Dawson County Art Council's 12th annual Art in the Garden event is this weekend and, according to Bowen Center for the Arts Executive Director Marcia Chelf, it's going to be a lot of fun for everyone.

"Art in the Garden is great fun every year," she said. "We want to invite everyone to come out for food, fun, music and arts and crafts."

The two day event will be from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at the Bowen Center for the Arts in Dawsonville.

A wide variety of music is planned to appeal to all interests.

Lanier Jazz will perform on Saturday and the Sawnee Band, a 60 member band, will be playing on Sunday.

Other various groups ranging from bluegrass to rock have also been booked.

Presentations are also scheduled throughout the weekend on topics like pollination gardens, native plants and general tips. Blacksmith and woodworking displays will also show off their craft.

Children will also be able to pot a plant for Mother's Day free of charge.

The University of Georgia will also have a booth on site this year, giving illustrations on what the downtown area might look like after a planned revitalization project is completed.

The Dawson County Chamber of Commerce had initially planned to host a screening of "Trouble with the Curve," starring Clint Eastwood, Amy Adams and Justin Timberlake on Saturday at Dawson County Middle School's football field.

The event has now been postponed until July 19 due to the pending threat of inclement weather.

For more information on the event, call (706) 216-2787 or visit
