Travel: Pasaquan

After reading about Pasaquan on the Roadside America website and in the Weird Georgia book, I knew I had to make the short trek to visit this visionary artist's home. Since my Sunday plans were canceled, I had the free time to attend Artists for Pasaquan, a small artists festival marking the end of the visiting season.

Located near Buena Vista, Georgia, USA, Pasaquan is a world-renowned visionary art site that was created by the late Eddie Owens Martin, between the mid-1950s and his death in 1986.

Even though the paint was peeling in most places, the colors were still vibrant.

St. EOM's mandalas covered many walls throughout the building.

Mazzy really enjoyed checking out the area and talking to other artists about making art. She's now thinking about how I'm going to buy a van so we can paint it up and drive it around. My little artist!

I even bought some art! Once I saw this Great Horned Owl by Peter Loose, I just had to have it. And then my pal Sam G surprised me with his Luv Folk piece. They'll look lovely in my art collection. 

If you're ever in the area, you'll have to check it out!
