The Dawson County Arts Council held an opening reception July 9 at the Bowen Center for the Arts for its current Father's & Son's exhibit.

The exhibit, which will run through the end of the month, features artwork created by the father-and-son teams of James Daniel Sr. and Jr. and Doug and Tyler King.

Dave Hinderliter, member of the Dawson County Arts Council board of directors, said that the reception had a great turnout.

"There were at least 35 people here, which is nice for a small show," Hinderliter said. "And it really is a great little show. Both pairs of artists are really talented and we're glad to have them (at the center)."

While the show is of artwork created by dads and their sons, each artist does individual work.

Doug King is a local wood turner, and produces high quality wood pieces, such as bowls, cups, plates and pitchers.

His son Tyler is a potter, or someone who creates artistic pieces from clay. Tyler creates similar items as his father does, they are just made out of a different material.

Tyler King is a graduate of North Georgia College & State University, and recently hiked the Appalachian Trail.

In much the same way that the Kings make similar items in a different manner, the Daniels do as well.

Daniel Sr. is a painter, whose works are a more classical style of fine art.

Daniel Jr. is a photographer, who specializes in capturing the perfect picture of unusual items, such as glowing underwater coral.

All of the artwork on display in the Father's & Son's show is available for purchase, with prices beginning at around $20.

The Bowen Center is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday-Friday and noon to 4 p.m. Saturday.
