Admission is free.

The Big Canoe Artists Club returns to the Marketplace to exhibit members’ artwork at its booth, which is always popular with residents and visitors. Artwork includes paintings as well as jewelry, pottery, sculpture, and other unique 3D artwork. Some of the Big Canoe Artists Club artwork available at the Marketplace is featured this week on Smoke Signals Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/bigcanoenews/).

In addition to the BC Artists Club, the Juried Arts and Craft show will feature dozens of vendors offering a wide variety of art and crafts. Several first-time artists are attending this year and will bring an assortment of new and exciting products to tempt buyers. Many popular artists are returning with a rich array of home and gift items for every taste and occasion.

The public is also invited to attend the Legacy of Caring Gala to enjoy an evening of fine dining, music and silent and live auctions with family and friends at The Clubhouse at Lake Sconti on Saturday, May 4 from 5 – 10 p.m. Tickets for the event are $100 per person and are available at a tent at the Marketplace, www.bigcanoelegacy.org, the Chapel Stand-Around or from Sandra Gadd (706-579-2443).

In 30 years Big Canoe Chapel Women’s Guild’s Legacy of Caring has raised $1,800,000 to support dozens of charities in Pickens and Dawson counties. Funds benefit charitable organizations that focus on the well-being of women, children, and families by providing life skills to overcome the cycle of poverty, oppression or substance abuse.
