A good deal, such as two for the price of one, is sometimes referred to as a two-fer.

On Saturday, Nov. 5, there will be a chance for a two-fer deal that will allow you to enjoy a great lunch while helping to support the Dawson County Arts Council.

The 5th annual Lunch at an Artful Table will feature great food and tables decorated in fun, colorful, elegant and over-the-top ways, according to Marcia Chelf, executive director of the Bowen Center.

Since 1995, the Dawson County Arts Council has held true to their vision of providing quality arts programs and services to improve the quality of life in Dawson County.

In addition to contributing to the cultural foundation of the community, the Arts Council creates citizen involvement in the arts by offering the resources and support necessary.

The value of strong local arts programs cannot be underestimated when it comes to accessing the quality of life intangibles used by both corporations with jobs to fill and individual families who are looking to relocate to our community.

In 2001, the council received an award from the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation for their restoration of the Old Rock School.

Today, the Old Rock School is a showplace for local artists.

Each month, a different visual arts show is offered, featuring local, regional and nationally acclaimed artists showcasing their talents in painting, sculpting, pottery and photography

The public is also invited to greet the artists at a reception generally held during the first week of each new show.

The Dawson County Arts Council provides many important services to our community, and is, in turn, worthy of support from everyone.

Even if youre not an arts lover, you can appreciate the fact that a dedicated group of folks are steadily engaged in helping improve the quality of life in Dawson County.
