Each year, Sawnee Association of the Arts puts on two shows:  Springtime in the City and the Christmas Festival at Lanier Tech. 

Springtime in the City 

This year, our spring show was held at the historic Brannon-Heard House in downtown Cumming.  This show gives our members the opportunity to exhibit and sell their creations.  Art that was on display included a gallery of paintings, photographs, drawings, woodwork, jewelry, pottery, textile art, and more. 

The member art was judged by Toni Molleson, an accomplished artist and past Executive Director of the Harris Arts Center.  See who won First, Second and Third place and Honorable Mention in the categories of Photography, 2D and 3D art.
