One of Olde Town's newest additions has stayed busy since its opening day a little over two months ago. The Olde Town Gallery and Studio has been bustling with artists and guests alike.

On May 16, during the Fine Arts Festival, the public was invited to view artwork entered in the Fine Arts National Juried Exhibition. That evening, there was an award ceremony and artists' symposium.

"Entries came from all over the country and we were pleased to see that almost all of the artists were able to attend the presentation," said Gallery and Studio Director Coyle Justman.

Kendra Hensley, organizer of the exhibition, said, "We are thrilled to be able to represent new artists from our community and abroad. We hope that it establishes a positive representation of the gallery and Conyers as a whole."

On the front windows, passersby can read the Gallery and Studio's motto, "Art defines culture in its broadest sense."
