Suwanee's Art on a Limb set for next month

By Ken Stanford Reporter
SUWANEE - It's a bud? It's a mug? It's Art on a Limb!

As has become tradition in Suwanee, art will be blossoming along the Suwanee Creek Greenway and other trails around the city during the month of May.

Through its Art on a Limb program, Suwanee "hides" two pieces of original artwork daily along trails throughout the City; those who find an art piece get to keep it. This annual "finders keepers" program is designed to promote an appreciation for art and nature.

This year's Art on a Limb pieces are mugs created by Dacula-based artist Sandra Nissen. Like many of the tiles she created for the 2007 Art on a Limb program, this year's mugs, which are in an assortment of glaze colors, include impressions of leaves picked up on Nissen's walks along the Suwanee Creek Greenway.

The child of an Air Force colonel, Nissen grew up in many states and two countries. She received a bachelor's degree in industrial design (with a minor in ceramics) from the Philadelphia College of Art. Nissen has managed several galleries and, since moving to Georgia 13 years ago, has worked and taught in clay. She teaches hand-building, mosaics, use of the potter's wheel, and silver metal clay at the Spruill Center for the Arts in Dunwoody.

Nissen also will be featured at this year's Arts in the Park festival in Suwanee on May 19.
