Historic Roswell, Ga is located 20 minutes north of Atlanta. I’ve driven through the area and have to admit that it is chaming and quite simply Southern. – CajunMama
The Great Chattahoochee River Paint Out takes place from Aug. 11-14.
Join professional and amateur artists as they gather for three days of painting in the beautiful Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area at Island Ford and select sites along the Chattahoochee River in Roswell. Tranquility, inspiration and beauty – you (and your muse) will find it here. The public is invited to meet the artists and watch them work and perhaps find a work of art they just can’t resist, one they have watched being created from conception to finish.
