Watkinsville was named the Artland of Georgia for having more artists per capita than any other city in the state. Supported by numerous artists, art galleries, museums, and events, you can experience the ultimate art experience in Watkinsville by shopping galleries, viewing exhibits, touring studios, witnessing demonstrations, and creating art. The largest pottery show in the state, and arguably the Southeast, is hosted in Watkinsville annually. Perspectives: Georgia Pottery Invitational displays and sells thousands of pottery pieces, and hosts gallery talks, pottery demonstrations, and workshops throughout the three-week event.
Art isn't all that we have to offer. Located on Georgia's Antebellum Trail, Watkinsville is home to the 1801 Eagle Tavern and the Elder Mill Covered Bridge, one of the few functional covered bridges in Georgia.
