Visit Arti Gras this weekend – one of the biggest and best arts shows at Lake Martin. With some 80 artisans under the tent on the Town Green at Russell Crossroads this weekend, this year’s show offers more variety than ever before. Find the perfect piece for the lake house; pick up a lovely hostess gift for your friends who invited you to the lake this week; or start your Christmas shopping early! Everything at this juried show is handcrafted original work. The event opens at 9 a.m. and closes at 3 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
