October 2009 - Carol Moore Demme's Gallery on the Main in Blairsville, Georgia
Gallery on the Main is now open for business in Blairsville, Georgia. The new gallery features work by sixteen professional artists and craftsmen from North Georgia and the Tri State area. Paintings, jewelry, beads, basketry, art glass, photography, pottery, furniture, prints, and note cards are available for purchase.
The gallery is actually a catalyst between artist and consumer. Gallery owner Carol Moore Demme says, "If a client comes in with an idea, I can help them find the right artist to do the job." Examples include hand painted furniture, custom tiles, jewelry, and special portraits.
She adds, "After many requests from friends and art patrons, I decided it was time to open a gallery. Most of the represented artists are well known throughout the United States . I would like to thank them for allowing me to display their fine art."
Carol, an established artist, is well known for her animal portraits. Her works are owned by such notable people as Oprah Winfrey, George Steinbrenner, and Madeline and Alan Paulson (owners of all time top money earning racehorse CIGAR).
Formally trained in the field of commercial art, Carol Moore Demme intended to be a fashion illustrator, but her love of animals and several years of raising (and showing) horses led her in a different direction. Carol says, "Animals will always be my favorite subjects." Since moving to the mountains of north Georgia in 2000, Carol has expanded her subject matter to include the local wildlife.
Gallery on the Main is the perfect place to purchase memorable Christmas and birthday gifts! Everyone in Union County is welcome to stop in for a visit!
