Our meetings are a time to meet fellow artists and craftspeople, see new trends and techniques, and improve your skills through interesting and enjoyable programs. Ever wanted to exhibit your goods in a public show? 


The Cumming Arts Center sponsors two shows a year and numerous exhibits. Please come as our guest to any of our meetings. We are interested in you, your works, and your story.




On Thursday, March 5 the Cumming Arts Center opened its second and newest exhibit for 2020. This exhibit will run through April 2020. Because CAC is temporarily closed to the public due to COVID 19, this exhibit can NOW be viewed on this Website. In the menu bar just click on “Virtual Gallery Current Exhibit”. Most of the artworks posted on that page are                                                                FOR SALE.
