Northeast Georgia’s Burton Gallery & Emporium

It’s quite an eclectic place, and that makes Burton Gallery & Emporium in Clarkesville, Georgia, an even more delightful stop on a visit to the northeast Georgia Mountains!

The gallery—which Southern Living magazine tagged “one of the best galleries in the State”— does not take a narrow focus in its space. Instead Burton Gallery & Emporium displays a wide-ranging selection that will appeal to a variety of tastes. While it is known for a large collection of original paintings, these are just the tip of its artistic iceberg. Step inside and you’ll find a wealth of other interesting and intriguing inventory: handmade creations by local artists, folk pottery, paintings, jewelry, wood pieces, utilitarian pottery, hand-painted furniture, baskets, and other artsy items. A nice bonus, helpful staff will be happy to give you insights into some of the local artists whose work is on display.

The shop offers an inviting, non-pressure environment, perfect for casual exploration. There is even a seating area next to a soothing Koi pond where visitors can take a break.
