“Dawg” storytelling event to benefit Homeward Bound
Gilmer Arts is off and running with its introduction of the new monthly program, Storytelling in Ellijay.
With recent stories from Kathi Harper Hill, Lucy Harris, 8-year-old Melanie Knauff, Oscar Poole and many others being told, the third Thursday of each month offers a fun, free and entertaining evening at the George Link Jr. Gilmer Arts Playhouse.
We are excited to team up with the good folks at Homeward Bound Pet Rescue Thursday, Sept. 20, for a silent auction benefit made possible by a generous donation of beautiful artwork by internationally-acclaimed local artist Max Muller.
Muller is a master watercolor artist, instructor, judge and experienced art director. His work has been featured in such popular art publications as American Artist Magazine, Palette Talk Magazine, The Best of Watercolor and Who’s Who in the South and Southwest.
The storytelling theme for the Sept. 20 event is “Top Dawg.” The price of admission is a donation of American-made dog treats or a gently-used or new medium or large dog sweater or jacket. But don’t let that stop you from coming!
You can preview the featured artwork, and bid online at GilmerArts.com beginning Sept. 6.
The storytelling event will begin with a reception at 5:30 p.m., during which attendees can also preview and bid on artwork. We will begin the telling of delightful “dawg” stories by members of Homeward Bound and others at 6:30 p.m.
Storytelling and bidding will end at 8 p.m. Several lucky attendees will go home with beautiful, museum-quality works of art by Muller and others will go home with a smile on their face from the wonderful stories shared.
