Michael Naranjo: Artist Who Sees With His Hands - 6/30/16
Michael Naranjo is blind. He lost his eyesight in 1968 while serving in Vietnam. Yet, to this day, Naranjo is widely regarded as one of the greatest living Native American sculptors. Booth Western Art Museum is excited to present a "touchable" exhibition in Michael Naranjo: The Artist Who Sees with His Hands. Michael Naranjo: The Artist Who Sees with His Hands will feature more than 30 works, drawn from the Collection of Tia, from throughout Naranjo's 45-year career. Michael Naranjo grew up in a New Mexico pottery family and went to school to study sculpture, but service in Vietnam threatened his dream. A grenade explosion took his eyesight and left his right hand severely wounded. Despite these limitations, Naranjo has created well over 100 important works including many monuments. Per the request of the artist and the Collection, this exhibition will allow visitors the opportunity to touch the sculptures…to see the pieces as the artist sees them. Hours are 10am-5pm Tues-Sat and 1pm-5pm on Sunday. Cost is $7-$10 per person for non-members and Free for members and children ages 12 and under. Phone: 770-387-1300 - Address: Booth Western Art Museum, 501 Museum Dr, Cartersville, GA 30120
Discovering Chattahoochee Valley Silk Paintings by René Shoemaker - 6/30 - 7/31/16 - Open everyday except on Mondays
Artist René Shoemaker will transform the Galleria with an exhibition of large-scale silk paintings, on view. Shoemaker, a long-time resident of Athens, Georgia, creates hand-painted silk works that celebrate the distinctive character of a city or place. For her exhibition at The Columbus Museum, the artist has created site-specific works about the Chattahoochee Valley after visiting here and immersing herself in its sights, sounds, and smells and making preliminary sketches of buildings, spaces and people. Shoemaker's medium of hand-painted silk has dye applied directly to the material. For this project, she used silk twill, a midweight silk that billows gently as the air moves. Handicapped Accessible event. Free admission and parking. Phone: 706-748-2562 - Address: The Columbus Museum, 1251 Wynnton Rd, Columbus, GA 31906

Folk on the Mountain Festival - 7/1 - 7/2/16 at 9am-4:30pm
Join us for a celebration of Folk Art - the immensely varied works of homegrown, not-formally-trained artists from around the southeastern United States who produce amazing hand-made creations in mediums including paint, pottery, sculpture, textiles, and more. Folk Art comes in every shape and description, from useful pottery decorated with clay grapes or dogwood blossoms to humorous or frightening face jugs; from small birds carved from found wood to life-sized sculptures of wood or metal that can represent animals or people (real or imagined); from paintings on old roofing tin of chickens or lizards or other animals too. The possibilities are endless, limited only by the imagination of the artist and the materials they have on hand. Visitors are sure to see the styles of Folk Art they know and love and will encounter things they never imagined could exist before seeing it. Handicapped Accessible (Limited) event. Admission cost is $10 per adult; age 7 to 11 is $5; admission for children 6 & under is free. Phone: 706-746-5828 - Address: Foxfire Museum & Heritage Center, 98 Foxfire Lane, Mtn City, GA 30562
