South Cobb Arts Alliance 32nd Annual National Juried Art Exhibition "America the Beautiful - An Artist's Oasis"

Date: August 5-24
Location: Vaughn Cultural Arts Center
Cost: Free and open to the public

America the beautiful can mean many things to artists: an oasis of landscapes from sea to shining sea, of streetscapes, of quaint villages and historic towns, to the urban and suburban views from the pavement to the skies.  And, of course, America the beautiful can be portrayed through photographs, drawings, sculpture, mixed media art, weaving, and the expressions of its people and it's natural wonders.  Its oasis is where and when the artist sees the beautiful whether up close and personal or from a mountaintop. 

Drop in during the month of August to view these amazing works! For open hours please, visit the South Cobb Arts Alliance webpage.
