    Union Army Chaplain Thomas B. Van Horne laid out the design for the Marietta National Cemetery in 1866 and it is considered the most attractive, ornate and elaborate National Cemetery ever created.  It has a section of graves that are laid out in the shape of a shield that can be seen from the air.  This image was taken by drone photographer Bill Brannen and will be on display during the Art Walk.

Artists

Ann Wallin has been creating wonderful pottery pieces for over 30 years.  She has participated in many juried shows and been a juror herself.  Her works span from sculpture to thrown and Raku to Saggar to functional.  She is always looking for new ways to present color and form with clay.
 
Ann Wallin - 159      "I always have enjoyed contact with the public and I enjoy the comments that are prompted by my work. I especially like the idea that strangers may enjoy my art enough to decorate their homes or to present my pieces as gifts.

     I look forward to many more years of forming shapeless lumps of clay into fresh expressions of my imagination.
" - Ann Wallin
 
     "I truly enjoy all kinds of pottery. Each technique offers its own set of challenges." - Ann Wallin Ann Walling #259 - Raku pottery



Bill Tyndale has been turning wood for many years.  He seeks to bring the best of nature to a form anyone can enjoy.  "My goal as a  wood-turner  is the ongoing  exploration of  design and technique as it applies to the art form itself.  The wood, the tree, teaches me, and I can only take what it's  willing to give. From the  aggression of the roughing  stages to the tranquility  of the finishing  touches, the journey, the dance is what it's all about.  In the learning process,  hopefully  some of my work  has an appeal, and has made it's way to someone's mantle or coffee table."

    Though born and educated in West Germany, Hubert Wackermann has traveled the American Midwest and to many Native American reservations throughout North America over the past 48 years.  His Indian friends liked him so much for his fine art paintings and trusted him enough to sponsor him as an immigrant.

    Wackermann's first study trip to North America in 1969 provided the opportunity to visit the Indians of Canada. Subsequent trips to Canada, the United States, and Mexico in the 1970's provided further opportunities to more thoroughly research the Indian, his culture and lifestyle. Upon immigrating to Canada in 1976, Wackermann lived for a year on the Six Nations Iroquois (Mohawk) Reservation in Southern Ontario. During this time, he taught art classes, and had the opportunity for more in-depth study.

      Fine art painter Forrest Jacobs transferred to Marietta High School in 1948.  He was graduated from Marietta High School in 1952 where he was active in the Key Club.  His many friends in high school were recipients of his art work.  "A very quiet person but so talented and fun to be around," says Mary Lou Cagle of Marietta.
 
     He worked at the Dairy Queen on Roswell Street (corner of Park Street).  This was the first Dairy Queen in Marietta.  He worked after school and on weekends.  Classmates loved Forrest because he always added a little extra to banana splits, sundaes and whatever he prepared for them. 
 
Forrest Jacobs - Sugar Mill

     Paintings by Forrest are typically oil on canvas, but he has also done watercolors, pastels and several other mediums.  His work is exceptionally well done but very unusual.  His imagination asserts itself in all his work, but the quality and expression of his talent is much greater than his modest nature.
Jackson Square - Forrest Jacobs

     He has had one man exhibitions at the High Museum, and in Atlanta, Toronto, New York City, Palm Beach and Louisville, KY.  He painted stage sets for Coppellia and Nutcracker for the Cobb-Marietta Ballet (the predecessor to The Georgia Ballet); paintings and murals for Mt. Paran Church of God, Atlanta; Bracebridge, Ontario Canada mural 9' x 54'; and a 6' x 12' mural for the Old Dahlonega Courthouse Museum which now hangs in the Lumpkin County Elementary School.  One of his paintings of Kennesaw Mountain is on display at Brumby Hall.

ArtWalk - August 4, 2017

   Avery Gallery presents "Wildlife Art by Charles Frace" on Friday, August 4, 2017 from 5 - 9 pm.

    Charles Frace was born in 1926 in a small town in eastern Pennsylvania. He began drawing at five and taught himself to paint when he was fifteen. Frace remembers wanting to be an artist from an early age. His self-instructed talent earned him a scholarship to Philadelphia's Museum School of Art, where he graduated with honors.

    In 1955, Frace began a professional career as a freelance illustrator in New York City. Eventually, he became one of the nation's most sought-after illustrators of wildlife. However, Frace soon grew frustrated by the restrictions of illustrating ideas conceived by others and longed to paint some of his own. He finished only one, which his wife, Elke, took to a nearby art gallery. They insisted on displaying the painting in the gallery, and it sold that same afternoon.

    In 1973, with the issue of Frace's first limited edition print, he had finally made the permanent change to fine art. Frace brings to his art over three decades of personal research and a close kinship with animals. Frace and his art has been the subject of two books.

    Perhaps the greatest honor of his career came in October 1992, when Frace was recognized with a one-man exhibit of thirty-six of his paintings at the National Museum of Natural History of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.
