2 artists returning to Powers for 42nd year From STAFF REPORTS R et u r n i n g for t he 2 01 2 Powers Festival are two artists who will have attended the festival every year since it started in 1971. “This will be their 42nd year with us and we are so happy to feature them for this year’s festival,” said Powers Pavilion E xec ut ive Di rec tor Hol ly Hammonds. Charles Adams of Adams Glass Studio in Troy, Ala., will be displaying his creative and

unique glass pieces for the 42nd year at Powers Festival 2012. Charles owns and operates Ada ms Glass Studio, which has evolved from a small glass hobby shop to a multifaceted stained glass studio that specializes in ecclesiastical windows. The Adams Stained Glass Studio features a unique collection of stained glass works including windows, Tiffanystyle lamps, doors, clocks, k a leidoscopes, su n catchers, and angels, which have become collector’s items and

See list of exhibitors — see page 2B are in great demand. He will display many stained glass doors , w i ndows , a nd su n catchers at this year’s festival. The success the studio has enjoyed over the years has served as a catalyst to greater undertakings. Adams, whose

roots are in the rural South, has recently turned much of his artistic effort to fulfilling a longtime goal of making stained glass windows available to every small, rural church in the South that wants them. The simplistic beauty of these churches can often be enhanced by the addition of stained glass windows, which are designed especially for each particular church. Many of these churches would like to have stained glass windows but have previously been

unable to find a studio to come to the church and work directly with the committee. Not only does Adams’ studio design, execute and install church windows, but it also creates windows and doors for businesses and homes. Adams has won numerous awards for his work and is in great demand as a glass workshop instructor. His glass creations can be found all across the United States, but also can be found this holiday weekend at

Three-day concert for charity on tap


Powers Pavilion has expanded the Three Day Concert for Charity to consist of 25 varied live bands on four separate stages for this 2012 Powers Fe s t iv a l ove r L a b o r D ay weekend. The four stages are comprised of one main stage and three separate side stages located throughout the festival grounds. The side stages are more of an intimate setting that will allow the bands to be personal and interactive with their audiences. T h e we e k e n d s c h e du le includes:

W h at bega n a s Powers’ Crossroads Country Fair and Art Festival — now known as Powers Festival — was formed in 1971 by local Coweta and well-known artist Tom Powers. The site of the festival was on the beautiful grounds of the P owe r s f a m ily plantation off Hig hway 34 in western Coweta a nd eastern Heard counties. Exhibitors were s e t up a lo n g winding paths under shady trees. The fesHammonds tival was a huge success f rom its begin ning a nd i nvolved all the communities of Heard a nd Coweta counties. Tom Powers op e r ate d t h e festival for three-and-ahalf years with Turnham much cooperation and assistance of these communities and their civic and church organizations. For various reasons, health and otherwise, Powers had to give up the operation of the festival, and in the middle of that last year the festival was under the supervision of the Newnan-Coweta Chamber of Commerce. In 1975, Coweta Festivals Inc. was formed as an umbrella organization of six non-profit civic groups: Newnan-Coweta Cha mber of Commerce, t h e Ne w n a n - C owe t a A r t Association, Newnan-Coweta Jaycees, Pilot Club of Newnan, the Newnan Coweta Chapter of Professional Secretaries International (later changed to International Association of Administrative Professionals) and the 4-H Boys and Girls of Coweta County. These non-profit organizations purchased the festival site a few years later when the land became available. The 86 acres still belongs to Coweta Festivals. The annual festival has continued to be a success. It has become well-known throughout the nation and has been selected several times by the Southeast Tourism Society as one of “The Top Twenty Events” for September. More than one hundred talented artists and craftsmen from across the nation gather each Labor Day weekend to display their works from Saturday through Monday. The 42nd annual Powers Festival opens for Labor Day weekend 2012 with new exhibitors and old favorites, new features, and a new management structure. Among the highlights of the festival are the abundance of country cooking and festival food, 18 bands on four stages, an expanded children’s area, and many special exhibits such as blacksmithing and

Powers Festival welcomes many new artists for 3-day weekend From STAFF REPORTS

This Labor Day weekend 2012, Powers Festival invites you to come home to t he crafts and traditions of the past blended with the creative expression of today’s artisans and crafters. At t he 42 nd e d it ion of Powers Festival the organizers are excited to have many new artists and crafters. “About 50 percent of our artists are new to Powers Festival,” said Powers Pavilion E xec ut ive Di rec tor Hol ly Hammonds. “There will be tons of unique and creative artworks that will be available to see and even purchase at the 2012 Powers Festival,” she said. Sharon Maudsley, owner of Southern Cross Designs, will be exhibiting at Powers this year. After moving to Mobile, Ala., Maudsley began working at a small restaurant. There she met Tress Turner, who showed her the best way to make a cross. After coming up with her own style of creating these crosses, Maudsley began to get more involved in the creative process.

are often custom designed for individuals. The centerpieces of these crosses are often personal to an individual, such as a passed loved one’s keys, jewelry, or even old furniture hardware

from a previous home. These crosses are definitely something to check out at Powers Festival, Hammonds said. Maudsley also makes hand-drawn art, with each one consisting of its own unique patterns. Mike Jenkins with Took 4 Granite is also a new exhibitor this year. Jen k ins was born in Douglasville, Ga., and has m ade Coweta Cou nt y h is home since 1996. He owns Took 4 Granite in LaGrange, Ga., and has more than 27 years of experience in customizing, fabricating, and installing natural stone.  Jenkins says that he has a passion for rock, and everywhere he goes he seems to find himself bending down to pick up a rock, shell, pebble, etc. With this love of granite and stone work, he has developed a passion for sculpting. The medium he uses is marble, granite, limestone, and other natural stones. The carving is done with wet diamond hand tooling, and all polishes are performed wet with natural polishing agents. All art is inspired by life events or experiences using the characteristics of stone to inspire.

Moore started her craft in 1967. While still a school teacher she started designing and sewing stuffed toys and puppets. What began as a hobby quickly became her business. Moore’s goal was to make quality handmade affordable toys, and she delivered. Over the years she has received awards from many of the best art and craft festivals across the nation for her quality and creativity. Though she started with children in mind, Moore’s blankets have captured the love of generations of families. She made the first blanket for her husband out of the soft man-made fur in 1968. Now, more than 40 years later, that blanket is still on his bed. It has been washed count-

stuffed animals, puppets, and blankets. “We are so excited to have them both back for this 42nd edition of Powers Festival,” said Hammonds. “Their crafts are truly unique and display what amazing craftsmen they are.”

nine years ago based on the fashion designs of Lizeth. Lizeth Castaneda had studied fashion design for only three semesters when she was asked to collaborate on a complete collection by a famous Colombian designer, Giovanni Lopez. Her artistic designs were acclaimed by the national media and, by the time she finished her education, she had an established clientele for her designs. During this time period, Lizeth developed an allergy to synthetic fabric and materials. Rather than abandoning her field, she shifted her

focus to the design of clothing and accessories, which are as natural and chemical-free as possible. Her designs have evolved into more natural and innovative creations. The couple handcraft all of their products using materials such as orange peel, coffee beans, cantaloupe seeds, dried cucumber seeds, as well as other natural and organic materials. These materials produce the most fantastic, original, and unique accessories one could imagine.

Powers artisans will be demonstrating their skills From STAFF REPORTS

The 42nd annual Powers Festival will include many exhibitors and artists demonstrating their creative talents and showcasing their works of art. Visitors will be sure to enjoy the talent that is shared by these artists and craftspeople. Also, there will be a blacksmith demonstration. Marvin Gardner has been blacksmithing for more than 35 years, first as a hobby and later as a profession.  Over the years, Gardner has enjoyed creating many blacksmith art pieces, including an Eagle with an 18-foot wing span as a memorial for 9/11 victims, and a memorial cross with more than 300 different leaves and f lowers sculpted into it. Through the years he has had the opportunity to create many custom utilitarian pieces, including stair railings, table bases, chandeliers and more. Recently, Gardner and his wife decided to redirect their focus to something they both really enjoy, which is blacksmith demonstrations. Marvin has been the blacksmith in the Primitive Skills Section of the Ossahatchee Indian Pow Wow for eight years. This experience has been the highlight of his year and has encouraged him and his wife to change their focus from production to demonstration. What they enjoy most is the interaction with the audience and with the young people who become their apprentice for about 10 minutes. “During the demonstration, my apprentice and I transform a tiny piece of quarter-inch rod into a hand-wrought, miniature horseshoe.

or 7-step style, as well as the more conventional versions of caning, used for porch rockers and other caned furniture. Powers Festival also welcomes back Ralph and Dan Donaldson, a father-and-son partnership better known as The Broom Brothers. Their trade name was originally intended as a takeoff on The Blues Brot hers , complete with hats, shades and overalls (instead of black suits). Dan likes to justify their use of the term “brothers” to describe themselves by saying that Ralph is his uncle’s brother, and he’s Ralph’s (other) son’s brother. A few years ago, Ralph was

inspired by an RFD-TV segment on Kentuck y broom maker Richard Henson. He and Dan planted their first crop of broomcorn that spring with moderate success. Six months later, both travelled to the North Carolina Mountains to study broom making with Marlow Gates at the John C. Campbell Folk School. Ralph, a non-profit administrator, and Dan, an investigator by trade, discovered that they both harbored a hidden aptitude for the craft. They began creating unique handmade brooms and offering them for sale at arts and crafts festivals around Georgia and neighboring states the next spring,

and they haven’t slowed down since. While Ralph’s brooms and Dan’s brooms are all recognizable as having been influenced by the Gates style, they can usually be distinguished from one another by style and materials. Ralph ties all the whisks and straw brooms, and all his brooms strongly reflect a traditional approach, though he also enjoys finding and using novelty handles. Dan’s brooms, sometimes nearly indistinguishable from his father’s, often veer further toward the experimental, artistic or just plain weird.

Earlier this year, Coweta Festivals, which is the umbrella organization for the five local non-profits that own the Powers Festival property, received a Special Events Use Permit from Coweta County. This Special Events Use Permit allows the property to be used for multiple events during the year. After receiving this permit, the Coweta Festivals Board of Directors decided to enlist the help of Xcessive Sound Inc., an event management company, to organize and produce multiple events a year. Proceeds from ticket sales at Powers Festival will go back to these five local non-profits each year. This will still hold true for this year’s Powers Festival, as well as with the many other events held on the property, said Mark Turnham, president of Powers Pavilion, the new name for the property under the new marketing arrangement. “We will also be supporting other charitable organizations such as the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Coweta County’s Special Education Program, as well as the Coweta County Fire Department,” said Holly Hammonds, who had worked in past years with the festival and is executive director of Powers Pavilion. There are also many non-profit organizations that participate in Powers Festival each year to help support and share information about their cause, such as the Newnan-Coweta Historical Society, Friends of Chattahoochee Bend State Park, and several local churches, they note.  Coweta Festivals and Xcessive Sound have made it part of their charter to give back to charities and the community as much as possible, said Turnham. The five local non-profits that make up Coweta Festivals include the Newnan Coweta Jaycees, the Pilot Club of Newnan, 4-H Clubs of Coweta County, the Newnan-Coweta Art Association, and the Newnan-Coweta Chamber of Commerce. These five non-profits help give back and support the community year-round with money raised from ticket sales at Powers Festival. Having multiple events on the property each year ensures that these non-profits as well as other charitable organizations will benefit more than they ever have before, said Powers Pavilion representatives.

There will be four stages with more than 20 bands performing throughout the festival. The area around the main stage has been reconfigured to make it more user-friendly and enjoyable, with tents for shade while audience members enjoy some of the festival food. Now that Coweta Festivals has received a Special Events Use Per m it f rom Cowet a County, it will allow the land to be used for more events throughout the year. “Powers Pavilion is currently expanding to bring more festivals, concerts, and events throughout the year, which will allow us to put more money back into the community and to charitable organizations,” according

donations will then be made to the organizations, Turnham said. Powers Festival “has always been charity driven,” he said. “We want to expand the charities. It’s one of the things we have in our company charter,” to benefit more than just the owners of the property. “We’re paying the same as if we had to pay someone,” Turnham said, but because the workers are volunteers with organizations, “the money is going for a good cause instead of to individuals.” Powers Pavilion has designated the long-time festival grounds as the “Festival Village,” and is adding the large parking area “Outdoor 54” — a name taken for the 54-acre field — for future concerts and events. Already on the schedule for the near future is an October/ Halloween event – Zombie Apocalypse — which will feature a trail of scary scenes and activities in the Festival Village section of the property. Winter Wonderland is scheduled in December.

... and the food is good, too From STAFF REPORTS

Sam Keith and his produce will be at the 2012 Powers Festival for the second year.

Fresh vegetables and fruit offered at Powers Festival Sam Keith and his produce will be at the 2012 Powers Festival for the second year. T his was a hit with the crowd last year, and Powers Festival is excited to have him back, said Executive Director Holly Hammonds. “Keith will be located at the entrance/exit gate this 2012

Powers Festival, so don’t forget to stock up before you leave,” said Hammonds. “Peaches, apples, ca ntaloupe, butter beans, butter peas, tomatoes, grapes, fruit juices and more… as fresh as you can get and ready for you to take home.”

One of the most important decisions at Powers Festival is what food to eat. That decision is not easy, so you might use this Powers ma xi m to assist you: just because you had four Cokes, two funnel cakes, a blooming onion, BBQ , and some ice cream, there is no reason to deny yourself that deep-fried Oreo. The festival’s food vendors offer a wide variety of delectable goodies. Most have been part of Powers Festival for so long they have their specialty down to an art. Powers boasts one of the most varied assortments of food seen at a festival, and this year will be even better, say organizers. Powers Fest iva l sta r ted allowing commercial food vendors to participate in 2010, and will continue to bring in unique and different types of food for each event held at the Powers Pavilion property. Among food vendors for this Labor Day weekend Powers Fe st iva l , to n a m e a fe w, Hillbilly Café will be offering fish, chicken, or shrimp baskets; Redneck Gourmet of Newnan will be there selling their fried green tomatoes and chicken balls. There will also be Greek gyros, Thai cuisine,

Jamaican food, noodles, baked potatoes, steak sandwiches, and others that will be offered by the many food booths at Powers Festival this year. Not to worry, the Powers vendors representing churches, clubs and civic organizations from the Newnan area will still be there as well. Mt. Ca rmel Un ited Met hodist Church will offer vegetable plates with black-eyed peas, corn on the cob, potatoes, tomatoes, sautéed onions, and corn bread. The Wi-Band Civic Club will provide an assortment of sweet treats such as fried pies, cookies, brownies, Rice Krispies treats, cakes, baked pies, and cheese straws. The Optimist Club of Senoia will be serving breakfast this year, as well as their fried pickles, hot dogs, and deepfried Oreos. T hese a re just a few of the nonprofit organizations that participate with Powers Festival. By suppor t i ng Powers Festival, you are also supporting all these nonprofit groups and organizations. New this year, Powers will be setting up tents with tables and chairs next to the stage area to provide shade for visitors while they eat.

Many of the long-time food vendors are returning for the 42nd annual Powers Festival this Labor Day weekend 2012. Here, Joseph Story with Mt. Carmel United Methodist Church cooks onions for their famous vegetable plates at the 2011 festival.
