Go Georgia: Where to see and experience art in Georgia


Folk Pottery Museum of Northeast Georgia, Sautee Nacoochee

The Folk Pottery Museum of Northeast Georgia explores the 200-year-old pottery making tradition of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Museum exhibits include utilitarian pieces such as handcrafted canning jars, butter churns and other wares that were essential to an agrarian lifestyle. Hideous face jugs with bulging eyes and crooked teeth are also on view. A short video demonstrates pottery making by the Meaders family, one of the most influential families of potters in the history of Southern Appalachian folk pottery.

Sautee Nacoochee Center, 283 State Highway 255 North, Sautee Nacoochee, Ga., (706) 878-3300, folkpotterymuseum.com

Morris Museum of Art

The Morris Museum of Art in downtown Augusta is the first museum dedicated to the art of the American South, a venue meant to increase an appreciation and understanding of the culture of the region. The permanent collection comprises antebellum portraiture, 19th-century genre paintings, contemporary art and paintings that reflect a southern perspective on the Civil War. A temporary exhibit, “Rhythm and Movement: Paintings by James Michalopoulos,” will be on view through May 14. Michalopoulos is known for his iconic images of New Orleans that reflect the city’s simultaneous beauty and decay.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Ky. - Ken Ham built an ark, a Noah-sized ark, in the verdant, landlocked hills of the American heartland.  At the sight of the wooden vessel, tourists - decidedly more than two-by-two, a caravan of buses surrounding the site - gasp in wonder.

The great “Dirty Dancing” lake war has been raging almost since that much-loved movie came out 30 years ago this August. It’s one of those rare wars in which both sides can claim a victory of sorts, as I learned this spring when I explored the two main locations where the film was shot. They’re about 235 miles apart, and each...

Keith Thye of Ruston loved the adventure so much, he decided to recreate it 50 years later. In 1963, Keith Thye dropped out of classes at the University of Oregon...
