Art of Georgia

In collaboration with the Office of the Governor, GCA facilitates this rotating exhibit that seeks to capture the uniqueness of Georgia landscapes and communities as seen, explored and depicted by Georgia’s artists. The two-dimensional images cover a wide range of media that includes, but is not limited to, photography, paintings, works on paper and mixed media.  Artwork is sought from artists in all 159 counties over a two-year period of time.  The selected works are exhibited while on loan from the artist for a six-month period.
