the editor of Smoke Signals, the newsletter of
the East Cobb Indian Hills Subdivision, wrote an article promoting
the idea of organizing the professional and non-professional
artists and artisans in the subdivision. That inspiration
became a reality with the Indian Hills Art Guild (IHAG). With
around 30 artists on its roster, IHAG is a non-profit organization
celebrating the talents of the artists that live in Indian
artistic ideas, current art projects, and taps art resources
in the immediate community for solutions and information to
bolster artistic inspiration. The guild meets once a month,
rotating between artists homes, with the host artist demonstrating
and explaining his/her specialty art or craft. In addition,
the guild stays active with field trips to art
events and exhibits throughout the Atlanta area and Georgia,
to stay current with happenings in the art world and support
some of its own members who exhibit their work.
the arts and crafts represented by the guild are: acrylic,
oil, and watercolor paintings, paintings on slate, colored
pencil drawings; beaded, wire sculpted, and fabric jewelry;
stained and fused glass and mosaic garden stones; pottery
and embellished tableware; and wearable fabrics and crocheted
accessories and dolls.
