Folk art to be featured at museum
The work of two local folk artists, Ken Woodall and Linda Anderson, will be on display at the Piedmont College Mason-Scharfenstein Museum of Art September 10 through October 1.
Anderson is a self-taught artist who lives in Clarkesville. Her work has been exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia in Atlanta, the Asheville Art Museum (Asheville, North Carolina) and the Manifest Gallery (Cincinnati, Ohio).

The public is invited to attend an opening reception for the artists September 10, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the museum. Author Joe Crawford will provide an introduction to Woodall's work at 5:45 p.m..
