A Jann Peitso, art!
Jann and Gene Peitso spend many hours in the national park hiking and meandering while searching for practically-lost sites, cemeteries and evidence of the basis for many often told tales. Jann returns to her gallery in the arts and crafts community and interprets those findings in her loose and juicy, brightly colored style of watercolors. Visit their gallery in the Smoky Mountains Arts/Crafts Village, and the Peitsos can share with you many of the trails that can conjure up a tale or two!
