Sautee Nacoochee, Georgia



The Center Gallery and Gallery Too at the Sautee Nacoochee Center host seven themed art shows each year. Approximately every six weeks the artwork is changed and the galleries are refreshed with new art by the locally juried artists whose work is eligible to be displayed.

Since the inception of the art gallery the main exhibition rooms are reserved for the artists who live within a 50-mile radius of the Center. A wide variety of art is always on display at the Sautee Nacoochee Center galleries consisting of paintings, fine art photography, pottery, wood turned art and wood sculpture, fiber art, glass, mosaics and ceramics, basketry, gourds, one-of-a-kind jewelry creations and paper art. Gift Certificates


Over 260 local artists, all juried members of the SNC galleries, bring their art creations to be displayed. Out-of-area invitational artists are also featured in the hallway gallery exhibition area.

The galleries are open seven days a week with no admission or parking fees. Come for a visit and see what our local artists as well as our invitational artists have to offer! The profound artistic talent of Northeast Georgia lives at the Sautee Nacoochee Center.
