The Rail Arts District is in Avondale Estates, Georgia just east of Decatur. It's a group of galleries and workshops in a light industrial area. On Valentines day your host and my two architecture tourist daughters cruised the RAD.
We saw glass blowing at Duckbill Studios.
We saw pot throwing at Mudfire Pottery Studio. Their gallery featured witty, folksy work by Mudfire founder, Erik Haagensen.

At Studio 2850 we ran into Jim Wakeman whom we'd met last year. If you have to be told who "Hoss" and Little Joe are, you might have trouble. Jim is on the left with your briefly bearded host.
Here is Jim Wakeman (left) and Zach Consorti founder Consorti Custom Concepts, LLC. Zack can make your art and your furniture.
These caught my eye at Bart Webb Studio. Well everything caught my eye there, not a gallery of serene abstract landscapes.
Gordo and Flacka are dead but I was feeling OK.
Here is Matt Armstrong at Little Tree Studios.
Music and art at Cutting Edge Gallery.
Two artists were working at Alcove Gallery.
Enjoyed the dog jumping through the flaming hoop.
Pretty good cruise.
We enjoyed the the 2009 RAD Studio Cruise too.
