Current Exhibits 

Our Friend in Stone Mountain – Margaret Ratcliff Exhibit

Margaret “Peggy” Ratcliff, a Stone Mountain based artist for two decades, produced a wealth of enamels, ceramics, pottery, oil paintings and watercolors over her professional life.   She was known in particular for her enamelwork and her beautifully rendered plates and bowls that show a love of nature and animals drawn from her surroundings.

The plate pictured here was a piece commissioned for New South Associates in 1994 and was presented to them as a welcome to the Village gift.

The exhibit can be seen at the Wells Brown House.  If any members have a Ratcliff piece we can borrow for the exhibit please call Mary Beth Reed 77-498-4155 ext. 128.

 

 

 

WELLS BROWN HOUSE Exhibit Room
The Doctor Is In

When we pulled together the information on Stone Mountain’s doctors for the original exhibit, we missed one – Dr. James McCurdy.  Son of Dr. Bill McCurdy and brother to Dr. Willis McCurdy, Dr. James Mc Curdy served our country  during World War II in the Pacific Theater.  He would die in a car accident a few short years after his return home. Through the thoughtfulness of board member Jim McCurdy, we are fortunate to have had access to his letters written home mostly to his father during the war.

His career and accomplishments are the focus of interpretive panels that chart his experience as he grew from small town doctor to a military doctor and surgeon and to some degree an ambassador for our country.
