March 18: Clayton, GA: Main Street Gallery

Main Street Gallery--Clayton, GA--80 miles northeast of Atlanta--within 30 minutes of Highland GA. (10:30 - 5 M, T and Thurs. through Sat.) 706-782-2440

This gallery specializes in self-taught art--also known as vernacular, outsider, or visionary art. features Della Wells, the mixed media collage artist, just as Marcia Webb's gallery did. It also has pottery and furniture.

Here are some pieces I found interesting:

Side Table 27 x 24 x 19
White pine and laurel
by Weyman Evans

Other places that might be interesting:
FolkArt Center: Mile Post 382 on Blue Ridge Parkway (a few miles from I40 and downtown Asheville)--has 900 juried artists


  1. Asheville looks like it might be a good candidate for a weekend visit. I do like that table. How are the artists the gallery shows different than folk artistrs?

  2. It's great to be able to follow what is going on in the art world down south. I grew up in Georgia, so it has a special interest for me. Thanks.
