Kathy Antar opened The Sewing Studio planning to provide sewing services for design professionals and event producers, but was soon flooded with phone calls and emails from people who simply wanted to know how to use their sewing machines. To meet that need, The Sewing Studio began to offer a selection of beginner, intermediate, and advanced sewing classes. During each 2.5-hour session, students learn how to thread machines, wind the bobbin, and practice various stitches using their own machines. In addition to classes, Kathy custom-designs furniture upholstery, bedding, and window coverings and supplies expert design-consultation services, which can transform a client's dream design into a tactile reality.
Established in 1965 by patrons of the Forward Arts Foundation, The Swan Coach House warmly hosts charming Southern lunches for leisurely ladies who wish to unwind, entertain, or outshine their table with tales of their grandchildren's triumphs. The menu preens with delicate offerings such as the Swan's Favorite, which tucks the house's signature chicken salad into blushing handmade pastry timbales as a creamy, frozen fruit salad clings to its plated skirt ($11.95). The salmon cakes stir Southern nostalgia and hushed pride into a boastful blend of salmon, celery, onion, and tarragon with dijon dill sauce on the side ($13.25). As conversation turns from friendly chatter to intense debate over the cultural prophesies espoused by Mother Goose, cut the tension with a traditional mint julep served in a frosted silver cup and sweetened with a pinch of sugar and fresh mint to contest the romantic wiles of a Mr. Jim Beam ($7.75).
Visiting The Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia isn't just about seeing works that have already been deemed important. It's also about discovering what the future of art may look like. That's because the museum showcases the visual works of not only established artists, but also emerging talent throughout the state. By investing so heavily in Georgia's artistic community and making the museum's collections available to the general public, MOCA GA strives to preserve these artists' legacies for the viewing pleasure of present and future generations. The permanent collection currently features over 920 works by more than 250 different artists, including paintings, sculptures, photography, prints, and digital works from the mid 1940s to the present day.
MOCA GA's staff displays many of the pieces from the permanent collection alongside works by artists from around the world, demonstrating how Georgia's artistic community fits into a larger global context. The museum hosts rotating exhibitions throughout the year, and it encourages community engagement by regularly holding artist talks and other public programs.
