Canova are residents of TRAC, The Tannery Row Artist Colony, in Historic Buford, Georgia.  The old brick building dates to the 1860s and was constructed by the Bona Allens as one to the largest leather tannerys in the nation, producing shoes, saddles and other leather goods .  Today it has been converted in to art studios for iron smiths, art and fused glass,  pottery, sculptors, and two dimensional art, along with several resturants.Links:  www.cityofbuford.comwww.tanneryrowalehouse.com, www.museumofbuford.com,    www.museumofbuford,com
