Local Art Event Openings- WOW!

We had two very special art events this past Friday night here on the Island. Two of our favorite artists had unveilings of their newest works of art.
Ralph Douglas Jones aka The Fish Art Guy unveiled Ralphael the Magnificent Flying Turtle to a large crowd of cheering fans. Despite the rain, we were all there supporting this great piece of art, which by the way, is for sale for $25,000. There is a wide variety of other fish art at prices the rest of us can afford- so stop by! 912 713 8647 http://www.fisharttybee.com/
Across the street at the DragonFly Studio, Denise Elliott- Vernon had a showing of her newest collection of art, Reincarnation. Denise is such a special lady, very involoved in the local art community and helps out whenever asked. Her beautfiul new collection features nature- the egret is just one of her very affordably priced art. Dragonfly Studios is located directly across the street from Seaside Sisters Coastal Cottage Shop. For more info, call 912 786 4431.
We are so lucky to have such a talented artist colony where all sorts of art is celebrated and cheered. Be sure you stop by both these studios as well as all the others to see all their fabulous art.

The 2008 Olympics have begun!

The Opening Ceremonies did not disappoint last night. The show was world class and China took this opportunity to show the world their greatest resource is their people. From the 2008 precision drummers who were in complete unision to the little girl flying the kite to the atheletes of the world marching in so full of pride to the lighting of the Olympic Cauldron- breathtaking beyond belief! The above pictures show the lighting!
Two websites to visit as you enjoy the world coming together to cheer- the offical website for the games : http://en.beijing2008.cn/ where you can see all the pictures of the Opening Ceremonies. You can also show our team how proud we are of them and cheer them on! http://www.americascheer.com/
