The Art of Georgia II: Portraits of Community

Georgia Council for the Arts in collaboration with the Office of the Governor, is pleased to announce a call for entries for The Art of Georgia II: Portraits of a Community. This second iteration of the exhibit follows the inaugural Art of Georgia: Celebrating Georgia’s Landscapes and People. The Art of Georgia II: Portraits of a Community seeks to capture the uniqueness of communities throughout Georgia as seen, explored, and depicted through the artist’s eye. Two-dimensional visual art, in a variety of media, exploring this theme will be considered.  Exhibits are organized by region of the state.  To review the guidelines and find out when your county is eligible to submit work, read the submission guidelines.
