Art @ The Rock set for November at 4-H Center in Eatonton.

The fourth annual Art at the Rock juried art show is set for Nov. 17 and 18, 2012 at Rock Eagle 4-H Center in Eatonton, Ga. The show will open at 10 a.m. and close at 4 p.m. on Saturday and open at 11:30 a.m. and close at 4 p.m. on Sunday.

The show’s artists will exhibit a wide range of work, from painting and pottery to jewelry and woodcarving.

Artists working in paint, clay, metals and fibers will display their work at this juried art show and sale that attracts more than 50 artists and a thousand visitors each year.

Joe Belt, a Columbus, Ga., resident who grew up in west Texas, has been selected as the show's 2012 featued artist. He trained in the fine arts at Texas Tech University, and his art has been shown nationally and collected in half a dozen foreign countries.

Belt works with many subjects such as wildlife, portraits and ranch life, but he is best known for his highly detailed pencil drawings of Native American subjects from throughout North America. His work in pastels, charcoal and watercolors has been featured on movie posters, book covers, album jackets and architectural murals.

Other Art at the Rock artists will exhibit and sell their oils and watercolors, pottery, jewelry, weaving, sculptures and many other art forms in an indoor exhibit hall.

The show will feature live music, and homegrown and homemade items will be sold in the show’s marketplace. Food and beverages will also be available.

A 5K race will be held Sunday, Nov. 18 in conjunction with Art at the Rock. The race will begin at 2:04 p.m. Pre-registration is $18 and on site registration is $22. Overall winners will receive a piece of artwork from an Art at the Rock artist. To register for the race, visit
