The Second Annual North Georgia Art Ramble is a free, self-guided, open studio tour of 44 studios and galleries situated in seven North Georgia counties; specifically in the towns of: Calhoun, Cartersville, Woodstock, Waleska, Canton, Ball Ground, Jasper, Marble Hill, Dawsonville, Cumming, Buford, Johns Creek, Duluth and Roswell. The Ramble will take place the 7th and 8th of December from 10am – 6pm. Come experience the creative process as the artists open their studio doors to the public, demonstrate their unique techniques, talk about what inspires them and how that spark finds its way into their art. There are over 70 participating artists, all working in different media, which means there is a great chance that you will find a special piece that speaks to you. This event is a unique opportunity as most of these studios are open only during the Ramble. Visit www.ngaartramble.com to view all of the participating artists, the locations of their studios and download or request a brochure with a map of the Ramble.
