Description: In a land not so far away — just outside Clarkesville, Ga. — storybooks will come to life during John and Nancy Kollock’s Storybook Christmas art show and children’s art contest. Costumed artists will share their stories through paintings, words, music, cornhusk dolls and pressed-flower art on Saturday Dec. 7, 2013. John Kollock’s gallery will be full of watercolor paintings, prints and books. His paintings illustrate local and personal history in the North Georgia mountains. Kollock also narrated a four-CD guided tour of 75 of Northeast Georgia’s places of interest with colorful facts and local lore. The show will feature watercolor artist Kathleen Kollock. An artist with both pictures and words, Kathleen reflects her interests and passions through her work, which often provides glimpses into her life in Georgia and Oregon. A flock of cornhusk bird ornaments will be released from Sarah’s Lavender Cottage. Sarah Samsel will be in her cottage to share stories behind all of her cornhusk creatures as well as her pictures created from hundreds of pieces of pressed plant material. www.sarahslavendercottage. com. Nathaniel Samsel, 15, who placed second in the 2013 National Mountain Dulcimer Championship in Kansas, will add music with his mountain dulcimer, guitar and banjo. CDs will be available. Author Heidi Peaster will be selling and signing books. Peaster has brought to life the fictitious McKenna family in a historical saga beginning in the 1800s. Peaster released the first of the McKenna Chronicles in 2012. The immediate response was such that she released six more volumes in the first year. Entries to A Storybook Christmas children’s art contest will also be displayed with winners recognized at the show. The top three will receive cash prizes, and honorable mentions will receive one of John Kollock’s children’s books.
