BUFORD — Rhythm can come from any where: music, a heart beat or dancing.

To showcase the different ways rhythm affects life, the folks at Tannery Row Artist Colony have created a new exhibit, “Rhythm,” which opens Saturday.

“We created this show to inspire the community and show them that art is accessible to everyone. Each piece represents an aspect of rhythm in our daily life,” exhibit coordinator Tonya Haswell said. “We have pieces that show rhythm in nature, in purely abstract form, three-dimensional form — the artists have taken it to every aspect.”

The opening of the exhibit is from 5 to 8 p.m. It is free and open to the public.

“I created a dress to show the flow of the paper and can visualize the dress moving across the room,” artist Bree Sauers said. Her piece is made entirely of paper.

The judges for the exhibit are Linda Lindeborg, a Georgia artist who has a piece of art hanging in the White House, and Danny Chauncey, a guitarist for the band .38 Special, who will also be playing a free concert at the Buford Community Center the same evening.

“His goal was to pick a piece that moves him as a fellow artist,” Haswell said. “We felt like between the two judges, we could cover the emotional aspect and art criteria.”

Haswell wanted the show to inspire the artists who are in it as well as engage the public with the pieces.

“For the community, for the person who hasn’t been to an art show or looked at an artist in depth, I want them to walk away with an artist’s representation of rhythm in their art,” she said. “It’s a two-fold goal in putting this show together.”

Tannery Row is located at 554 W. Main St. in Buford.

The show runs through Nov. 23.
