It's the Bear on the Square Festival!

 
It's time for the 2012 Bear on the Square Festival!  This April 21st and 22nd, welcome to the Dahlonega, Georgia town square bushels of bluegrass musicians and hand-crafted vendors.  Why Bear on the Square?  True story - when they cleared the land for our local Wal-Mart, a bear family was displaced.  one of the bears made it all the way to the town square and CLIMBED A TREE!  The forest service had to be called in to tranquilize the bear (don't worry, it was released unharmed back into the wild!).  Sensing an excuse to throw a party, the locals started our annual festival to commemorate the little bear's journey to literally - the top of the square!
 
Cranberry Corners will be open all weekend, so stop by and pick up a Mother's Day Gift and maybe a little gossip, too!

John Dahlstrom Opens Cranberry Corners Studio...

Jon Dahlstrom came into this world drawing. In fact, he can't remember a time when he wasn't drawing. From his earliest years, he filled every available sheet of paper, including the back of lunch bags and margins of second grade math papers - with drawings of cars, cowboys, and football players. 
Always shown in action, always telling a story. Jon grew up in a rural Southern California community and went on to become a scholarship student at the Art Center College of Design. A freelance illustrator, Jon Dahlstrom's drawings have been published in dozens of books and magazines including Road and Track, Cycle World, Teen, Surfer, Los Angeles Magazine, and the Chicago Tribune (to name a few!). He recently followed his internal compass from the west coast all the way to Dahlonega, and says it's the best decision he ever made! Jon Dahlstrom can be found on an almost-daily basis, drawing plotting and scheming inside his Cranberry Corners Art nook.
