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

Christmas Festival


In 2019, we sponsored our annual Christmas Festival at Lanier Tech.  This community event hosts over 90 artisans and craftsmen – all with handcrafted merchandise in the largest art and  craft show in the county

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
