Burton Gallery & Emporium “One of the best galleries in the State.” – Southern Living Magazine
A northeast Georgia tradition of fine art and craft … paintings, pottery, wood, jewelry, folk pottery, and other handmade work by local artists, Burton Gallery is just 14 miles east of Helen, 16 miles north of the square in Clarkesville, and less than a two hour drive from Atlanta or Asheville.
Don’t let the word gallery fool you – the last thing you will find when entering Burton Gallery is an antiseptic gallery atmosphere. Marlene Eck strives to create a warm, inviting place to stop in after a day of enjoying the lake or the Highway 197 scenic drive.
Burton Gallery welcomes you to browse through the shop, enjoy the Koi pond where children can feed the fish, or sit on the trellised bench and enjoy the babble of the pond’s waterfall.
Customers feel free to stroll in the casual environment as Marlene and her staff share the stories behind the work, and motivation behind some of the area’s most creative residents.
