Arts center presents cultural celebrations

MILLEDGEVILLE —  

Georgia College’s Sallie Ellis Davis House will host cultural events during April to celebrate Southern culture and historic preservation.

The cultural arts center is partnering with local artists to provide two engaging workshops that will illustrate southern culture. The Sallie Ellis Davis Cultural Arts Center is also a part of the Historic Preservation conference and the Georgia Trust annual Ramble in Milledgeville this year

“We are highlighting arts that are quintessentially southern this month. Ceramics were used by Native Americans, European settlers, Africans and all of those traditions together made our southern tradition of ceramics. Today ceramics are utilitarian and/or art forms and Josh Green will highlight those traditions and give participants the opportunity to make something to admire or use. In addition to ceramics, we are also featuring a class about the artistic and utilitarian purposes of gourds taught by Carol Babb of the FolksArt gallery. Gourds are southern staples, and have been referenced in song and used for bird houses and other projects,” said Deitrah Taylor, program assistant of the Sallie Ellis Davis House. 

The Sallie Ellis Davis Cultural Arts Center will be joining the museums and historic homes of Milledgeville in participating in the 2013 Georgia Historic Preservation Conference & Statewide Historic Preservation Commission Training and Georgia Trust Ramble. The Georgia Trust listed the Sallie Ellis Davis house as part of its 2009 Places in Peril list. The Georgia Trust was a key partner in research, restoration and awareness of the house at a critical moment in its history.
