Chateau Elan is located north of Atlanta, Braselton, GA and near Commerce, GA -- which is up Highway 85 going toward South Carolina. The facility is beautiful and you can imagine the grounds and vineyards. This is Mother's Day Weekend, and many people will be around. It is a perfect opportunity to do a paint out and show people what we do as plein air artists. Besides the added bonus of creating for ourselves. Toby Reid and I are spearheading the venture and he is talking to Chateau Elan about a future date for a show of our work created there on their grounds. Join us! Sign up! Discussions can be found on three groups: Georgia Plein Air, Eastern US Artist Network, and Southeastern Pastel Society.
Here are the details for the paintout at Chateau Elan - May 8 and 9 from 9 to 5 or later if the Artist wishes.
We will park behind the Winery. The Winery is the building straight in front of you as you turn into the property. Take your first right after entering the property towards the Inn and keep following around until you are behind the Winery.
Go north on I-85 towards Braselton and you will see signs and the Inn on the left.
I will bring a table and a clip board for signing in to put in the parking lot.
The Inn (white table cloth) and the Winery (casual) both serve food if anybody wants. It might be a good idea on Mothers Day to check at the Inn if they are doing reservations.
There are many restaurants turning left out of the property and a Grocery store. There is one gas station ( BP ) but I would not use it as it is very expensive per gallon.
Chateau Elan is not providing anything for us, except to be on their property; so everybody needs to bring what they will need for the days. There are restrooms in the Winery,Spa and the Inn. I don't know if the Stables have restrooms but I would guess that they do. There is another property there called Legends at Chateau Elan that has gates with codes to get in and we have not contacted them as it is a porivate home and golf course division.
Please be courtious to the golfers,Spa and tennis folks that will be there.
