North Georgia Art Guild Show at Lake Rabin, Georgia

Lake Rabin (Rabin County) Georgia
Lovers of the lakes in Georgia know that most are not natural but formed by intricate dam systems that redirect the many smaller rivers in Georgia creating energy and providing wonderful recreational opportunities.  Lake Rabin is exactly that kind of lake.
Ten miles long, 834 acres, and 25 miles of shoreline, Georgia Power’s Lake Rabun is a tremendously diverse fishery. Lake Rabun was created in 1915 by the completion of 108-foot high Mathis Dam and is the third largest of the Tallulah River chain.

On Saturday, my husband and I traveled to Lake Rabin to attend an art show sponsored by the North Georgia Art Guild link to guild website- it was being held at the Lake Rabin Pavilion.  Good friends, Randy and Patti Sells, are "movers and shakers" with the guild and also talented artists.  They are sisters-in-law and good friends living nearby in wonderful hilltop and wooded seclusion.  Besides that strong motivation to visit the event, the temperatures in Atlanta have been hovering around 100 (like much of the country) and we hoped for some relief from the heat by traveling north and UP!  We did find about a 10 degree difference - not huge!

Photocard Purchased

I took some photographs, sipped complimentary wine, chatted with Patti and Randy and bought several of Patti;s photocards.  It was a wonderful day trip and excursion.

I loved these hats handmade by Suzi - I am a hat person and wear them all the time.  The price, richly deserved for this fine work, was a little steep for me ($100 plus).
