Several local artists battled the wind Saturday in downtown Warrenton, GA as they showed off their artistic skills. The pre-Irma gusts demanded that tents be disassembled or suffer the consequences. After a few close calls with tumbleweed scenarios, artists pulled their tents down and snuggled against the walls for safer refuge.
All in all it was a gorgeous and enjoyable day. Ania Hatfield, who is best known for her spray painting techniques, received Best of Show honors for a pencil drawing of herself titled "Self Portrait". Adam Stone, a wood working artist, carried away two prizes for "Blue Willow Bowl" and "Finial Lidded Box". Photographers Chris Banks and Christina Miller, along with painter Valton Murray and cross-stitch artist Diane Roberts displayed their works along Main Street in the art block.
Inside a local shop, formerly an art studio, the Warrenton Garden Club put on a unique show. They paired up works of local artists with flower arrangements. Augusta musician Bill Karp added to the vocal arts with a fabulous set of jazz standards. He had some dancing in the streets!

The Hometown Warrenton Board of Directors welcomes Louise Hadden as its newest Board member. Louise has been serving in the community because that is just who she is...She asked to serve as soon as a seat was empty. With Michael Huebener finishing up a third three-year term on the HWI Board, Louise's name was placed on the ballot. It was an enthusiastic and unanimous decision to elect Louise to fill the vacant seat. We would like to congratulate Louise for joining our Board and to commend her for proactively seeking to serve this community.
The HWI Board members and Manager, Cindy Rivers, would like to recognize Michael Huebener and his nine years of service to this organization. Many of those years Michael served as the Chairman, and he was instrumental in leading us through the split from the Warren County Chamber of Commerce Board this past year. Thank you, Michael!
