Art in Blue Ridge, GA
During the early 1900's, visitors journeyed to Blue Ridge by train to enjoy the health resort's pure mineral waters. Today, growing numbers of tourists are coming to historic Blue Ridge and McCaysville to shop in our specialty shops and galleries for fine furnishings, art, antiques and unique crafted items. Artists are especially attracted to live and work in the Georgia mountains because the peace and quiet, misty mountains and clear starry nights provide time, tranquility and inspiration for creating wonderful art, from tradition art and craft to contemporary painting and sculpture.
