Two art galleries in Dawson County will be on the map next week for the second annual North Georgia Art Ramble.

The ramble, an annual art event, offering the opportunity to visit more than 40 working studios, galleries and artists with a variety of forms and media, will be held Saturday and Sunday and take visitors across the north Georgia mountains.

The locations on the tour include Canton, Ball Ground, Cumming, Marble Hill, Dawsonville, Buford, Duluth, John's Creek, Roswell, Woodstock, Cartersville, Calhoun and Jasper.

"This tour encompasses eight counties, 44 stops and artist studios, art centers and galleries," said Tracey Burnette, local curator and art teacher. "There will be signs for people to follow and maps. Hopefully it'll bring a lot more people to Dawson County to shop, eat and look at art."

The main hub for Dawson County will be the Bowen Center for the Arts, which will be open from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. over the weekend in order to welcome visitors.

The county's other stop on the ramble will be folk art gallery Around Back at Rocky's Place.

"They were putting it together and we figured why not join in," Burnette said. "It's good advertising for the county. Mostly, only the serious collectors come to this. We're the only folk art gallery on the tour, too."

The Bowen Center for the Arts will be showcasing Blackberry Creek artists as well as other local artists. Rocky's will be showcasing artists Dorothy Gorham, Bluejay, Bird, Billy Roper and John "Cornbread" Anderson.

"We're bringing in all of our heavyweights coming in for the folks," Burnette said. "People can meet and talk with the artists."
