Artists frame past, present Georgia scenery Sautee Nacoochee Center displays landscape views BY ANDREW AKERS

aakers@gainesvilletimes.com Scenes of family farms and Georgia landscapes are gracing the walls of the Sautee Nacoochee Center in two exhibitions featuring Georgia artists. “Abandoned Rural America” is a collection of works from six different artists illustrating the disappearance of rural family homes and farms, especially in the South. It features paintings, photos, prints and models of abandoned farmhouses and other rural artifacts. “Each piece has a story to tell about our culture, the nature of change, hard work on the family farm and the simplicity of the country lifestyle,” states a description of the exhibition in the center’s newsletter. The exhibition features works from Peter Muzyka of Madison, Lisa Wheeler of Greensboro, Eugene Swain of Buckhead, Charles St. John Dyer of Social Circle, Don Jolley of Augusta and Blake Smith of Athens. “Landscapes, Seascapes and Other Escapes” features 40 original watercolors from Clarkesville’s John Kollock, who famously designed the “Alpine village” makeover of Helen in the 1960s. Kollock often paints local historical homes, courthouses and other scenes as well as landscapes of Sautee Nacoochee and surrounding areas. The exhibition features a cross section of his work. Also on exhibit in the center’s front hallway are drawings of Americana by Florida artist Reg Moore. Every artist who has work displayed at the center is invited by a committee from the Sautee Nacoochee Community Association. Generally, artists are required to live within a 50-mile radius of the center and must submit a selection of works for consideration. The center has more than 200 juried artists and hosts seven themed exhibitions a year. The galleries are open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays, and 1-5 p.m. Sundays .The exhibitions run until July 28. For more information, call the center at 706-878-3300.

View ‘Heaven to Earth’ in Clayton From staff reports Main Street Gallery in Clayton will exhibit “Heaven to Earth,” paintings and sculpture in the upstairs gallery at 51 N. Main Street in Clayton. The new exhibit features art by visionary painter Tommy Durham and garden “spirit” sculptures by Georgia resident Mike Jones. The “Heaven to Earth” exhibit runs until July 30. Gallery hours are 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Admission is free. Durham began drawing as a child and has never stopped. Today, he starts each work with a detailed drawing and fills it in with acrylic paints creating an effect akin to stained glass work. It’s been noted there is a Chagall-like feeling to his compositions and perhaps a touch of Picasso. Durham’s subject matter is always based on Biblical stories. He embellishes his pieces with extravagant and colorful flowers. “I am just doing what God told me to do,” he said. “When I am doing artwork, I am happy and God is pleased.”

“The Presentation of Jesus” is an acrylic painting by visionary folk artist Tommy Durham. It is 40 inches high and 30 inches wide and featured in Main Street Gallery’s July show, “Heaven to Earth.”

Jones was born and raised in Georgia. He sculpts realistic and fanciful people and animals from granite and sandstone, an art medium to which he

has been dedicated for the past three decades. He is largely inspired by preColumbian indigenous art from around the world. Completely self-taught,

‘Turbo’ uses kid-friendly formula JEFF MARKER jeffmarker@rocketmail.com

Film Review Perhaps the only feat more amazing than a snail racing in the Indianapolis 500 is a group of filmmakers making a good movie about a snail racing in the Indianapolis 500. DreamWorks Animation and first-time director David Soren do exactly that with “Turbo.” They transform a concept that shouldn’t work at all into a thoroughly enjoyable, familyfriendly movie. That isn’t to say this is a great film. Beyond a completely implausible story concept, “Turbo” has to overcome numerous flaws, foremost among them is a lack of originality. Turbo (Ryan Reynolds) dreams of being a racer and escaping the mundane and fearful life of a snail. One night, he is sucked into the nitrous-oxide system of a street racer and undergoes a physical transformation. The nitrous oxide fuses with Turbo’s blood cells and makes him incredibly fast. It also makes his eyes glow. Those effects make a kind of sense. But Turbo suddenly has taillights, turn signals and a radio. There is no way of explaining that. They are only there to set up jokes. Turbo and his practical, discouraging older brother Chet (Paul Giamatti) are captured by Tito (Michael Peña), who, along with his brother Angelo (Luis Guzman), runs a taco stand in a run-down shopping plaza. As fate would have it, when he isn’t being hounded by his own practical, discouraging

entertaining family movie

older brother, Tito races snails against the owners of the other businesses in the plaza. Turbo showcases his amazing speed, and soon Tito and Turbo set out to enter the Indy 500. So a down-on-his-luck human character teams with an animal usually regarded as a pest to fulfill both of their dreams. Think of it as an American “Ratatouille.” Tito and Turbo’s big dream is financed by the owners of the other shops, who hope Turbo

can save their dying businesses. Think of it as an urban “Cars.” Think of the Indy 500 storyline as, well, every other movie built around a climactic race. This is an amazingly formulaic movie, but also a reminder of why these formulas exist: They work when the filmmakers do something fun with them. In the case of “Turbo,” the animation is wonderful, particularly the scenes showing Turbo’s transformation and all of the racing scenes. The voice cast is hip and hilarious, featuring Samuel L. Jackson, Bill Hader, Maya Rudolph, Richard Jenkins, Michelle Rodriguez and Snoop Dogg. My only bone to pick with the cast is the presence of Ken Jeong. He is not the only Asian actor in Hollywood, people. He is so overused here he voices a

female character. It’s a shame producers didn’t cast one of the many talented Hollywood actresses of Asian descent instead. Yes, the movie suffers from these and other problems, and none of it makes any sense outside of a young child’s imagination. But that is exactly why the movie works, because it conforms to kid logic rather than grown-up logic. Kids enjoy a freedom of imagination most adults can only experience vicariously, and ultimately that’s what the movie provides. Perhaps what I like best about “Turbo” is it’s a genuine PG movie. The Hollywood trend for years now is to market PG-13 movies to kids and parents, but “Turbo” is truly fun for all ages. There are only fleeting moments of scary peril. The rest of the action is of the

racing variety. And the entire story is told with an infectious innocence. This is destined to receive mediocre reviews at best, because it isn’t made for critics. “Turbo” is unapologetically for the kids and their parents, especially the Generation X parents who will get all of the subtle references. There are no pretentions or aspirations to reinvent anything, only an earnest attempt to provide escapist entertainment that encourages kids to aspire to something great and persevere until they achieve it. Couple that attitude with the movie’s exquisite animation, and “Turbo” is a winner. Jeff Marker is head of the Communication, Media & Journalism Department at the University of North Georgia.

Take a walk in Gainesville, watch ‘Barefoot in the Park’ From staff reports Even with many of its theater majors off acting in summer stock across the country, the Gainesville Theatre Alliance assembled a talented cast of alumni and professionals for a free stage reading of Neil Simon’s romantic comedy “Barefoot in the Park” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, July 18. Patrons are invited to bring lawn chairs and a picnic for the reading in Gainesville’s Roosevelt Square, off the downtown square between the Brenau Downtown Center (formerly the Georgia Mountain Center) and the Hall County courthouse. Free parking is available on the square and in the parking garage. Neil Simon’s classic romantic comedy follows the lives of newlyweds Paul Bratter, who is Mister

Straight, and his new wife Corie, who is an effervescent free spirit and won’t let anything disturb her romantic bliss. As the ecstasy of the honeymoon gives way to the reality of setting up housekeeping in a fifth-story Greenwich Village walk-up, the harmony of marriage turns to comical discord. The Gainesville Theatre Alliance is the nationally acclaimed collaboration of the University of North Georgia, Brenau University, theater professionals and the northeast Georgia community. Formed in 1979, GTA has won national and state awards for excellence and served a record audience of more than 25,000 patrons last season. About 80 people attended last month’s reading of the original play “The Bra and Panty Club.”

Milly, a serving girl with passion and sass, who falls for his sweet talk about the farming life. They are quickly married, but when Milly returns with Adam to his home, she finds there are six rowdy brothers living there. Milly valiantly attempts to civilize the brothers so they can find brides of their own. But Milly’s plan backfires when the brothers decide

to go find six women to be their brides. What follows is a hilarious series of events full of dancing, fighting and even kidnapping. “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers” is full of comedy, show-stopping dances and charming melodies including “Wonderful, Wonderful Day,” “Bless Your Beautiful Hide,” “Sobbin’ Women,” and “Goin’ Courtin’.”

Fernbank educators will feature some of the cool critters from the museum’s live animal collection in special Remarkable Reptile presentations at select times. Not everything involves a live animal, though. For the skittish and stylish, visitors can enjoy making faux snakes during Fernbank’s snake bracelet craft activity.
