Artists take diverse approaches to flowers in two central Arkansas exhibits - Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
Claude Monet, Georgia O'Keeffe, Vincent van Gogh, Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein are just a few who have found inspiration and notoriety in flowers. Each created masterpieces that explored the possibilities and mysteries they found in water and calla lilies, sunflowers and more.
Two current exhibits in central Arkansas present a diversity of approach -- the metalpoint creations of Marjorie Williams-Smith at Hearne Fine Art and the oil paintings of Diana Shearon at Red Door Gallery.
Williams-Smith, who is retired from the art faculty at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, works in the demanding, intricate sphere of metalpoint -- silver, copper, gold and more -- to create images that appear to be almost academic botanicals.
Until you let them soak in.
"The Messengers: A Survey of Work in Metalpoint" presents 39 works by Williams-Smith from 1987 through this year. The 1987 piece, Pin Rose, is a silverpoint and graphite work that is simple and direct, yet hints at resistance to being constrained.
Initially working only in silverpoint, Williams-Smith has exerted her command over other metals a... Nov 15, 2018
Georgia roadsides dazzle with flowers and butterflies galore
Recently I seemingly awoke from a daze while driving Interstate 85 north of Columbus, Georgia, beautiful Pine Mountain was in the distance and a sea of yellow orange lavender and pink was almost iridescently glowing in the middle of the divided highway. I went back the next day, got out of the car and walked to the middle surround by thousands upon thousands of cosmos flowers. I have to admit it was exhilarating, especially to a nature kind of guy.
Last year the Georgia Department of Transportation is taught all of us about the old floral favorite Cosmos bipinnatus that needs to be brought back to the garden. This cosmos is an annual easy to grow and drought tolerant can comes in shades of lavender, rose, pink and white. This year GDOT taught us about the false theory on some color combinations such as pink and rose don't work with yellow and flaming orange. These long stretches of an already scenic highway dazzled with colors reminiscent of a desert sunset. So, you gather that this year they combined the Cosmos bipinnatus or Mexican aster with the flaming hot colors of the Cosmos sulphureus or Sulphur cosmos. The partnership is staggering ...

Dawson County recognizes Veterans Day
Costley also noted the honor of Dawson County being
nationally recognized as a regional site for Veterans Affairs in Georgia.
"Each year the Veterans Administration nationally
recognizes two locations in each state to be designated as regional sites for
the VA," Costley said. "The other one [besides Dawsonville], by the way, in the
state of Georgia is the city of Atlanta, so I am very honored, as we all are,
to have this designation bestowed upon us."
During the ceremony, the 2018 Veteran of the Year award
recipient was announced by Vietnam Veteran Wayne Watkins.
Sgt. Albert Andrew Day, an Alpharetta born Vietnam
veteran, serving in the third, infantry fourth battalion Delta company until
his honorable discharge in 1970, received the award for his military service
and his continued efforts within the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 970.
Day currently serves on the board of directors and served
as the special operations officer in charge of the chapter's primary
fundraising event for two years.
"I don't feel like I deserve it, but I'll take it with
honor," Day said. "My tour in Vietnam might not have been as exciting as some
of you, but it was really an experience, and if I had to do it all over again,
I'd do it." ... Oct 26, 2018

Three wines to stock up on for Thanksgiving, plus 2 more to sip on warm days
This is an unusual wine, not just because we don't see many from Macedonia. It is a blend of the white rkatsiteli grape (native to Georgia) and the native Balkan red vranec.
