This weekend was a busy one in Grayson. Grayson Day 2015 might’ve been a little waterlogged early in the day, but the festival was blessed with nice weather and a great turnout. In the midst of all of the festivities, the City re-opened the doors of the Arts & History Center, complete with ribbon cutting.

Mayor Allison Wilkerson read a statement welcoming the community, surrounded by Team Grayson members Gail Lane, Laura Cone, Laurie Anderson, and Nicholas Moff. They were also joined by Georgia Representative Brett Harrell, and Snellville Council members Dave Emmanuel, Tom Witts and Bobby Howard.

“I would like to welcome you to the Grand Re-Opening of the Grayson Arts & History Center,” the Mayor read. “With the assistance of Angel Wirt of the Sunshine Rotary, we are proud to provide the citizens of Grayson with a museum that truly reflects our community’s foundation and reflects a heritage that we are proud to share with visitors to Grayson.”

The makeover of the Arts & History Center also includes the new Gallery in Grayson, which offers unique pieces from local and regional artists and craftsmen. The gallery includes woodwork, painting, photography, pottery, stitchwork and printed materials such as books and cards.

“We are so excited that the range and diversity of art showcases the exceptional talent in our community,” the Mayor said.

Art classes will resume in the new teaching space, and the Center will be open again for public viewing. An image gallery of the remodeled space is below.
