Our Art Galleries & Exhibitions

SCAA’s goal is to expand outreach exhibits on behalf of SCAA artists and other local artists, as well as exhibiting the works of art educators and their students. Art can build and strengthen our community which is why SCAA works to use public spaces to exhibit artwork, to include other art mediums such as pop up live performances, and to create public awareness with each exhibit having community recognition. Fun, learning, and appreciation of the arts are the benefits to the comuunity with art in public spaces.

South Cobb Arts Alliance sponsors art gallery exhibits year-round as well as holds juried art shows. The website event calendar lists details of current and upcoming SCAA events, exhibits and SCAA Community updates. Information is also on Facebook or Instagram, or you can sign up on-line to receive newsletters.

Contact us if you are an artist, an art educator, or if you would like to have SCAA host an art show event to continue the tradition of art in our community. And, for this all volunteer organization, consider exhibit volunteering as an option.

Annual National Juried Art Exhibition

NJE is an SCAA tradition with an annual national competition of art from all over the nation displayed for the community as public art in a public place. For over 32 years, each year our all-volunteer non-profit organization has been very fortunate to have such a strong response from so many talented and accomplished national artists. Unfortunately, our 33rd year event was paused during the virus outbreak.

SCAA has been gratified by the large number of entries received for National Juried Exhibit, in terms of both execution and creativity.  The annual competition includes all mediums with the Call for Artists posted locally and on a national call for art registry.  NJE is a juried show adjudicated by a third party, who is an accomplished artist and/or an art instructor with many years’ experience.

Each year the talent of our applicants makes the selection process competitive and the judge’s job difficult.  The results are grand art for children, students, families, artists, seniors, and individuals in our community at a space not far from their neighborhoods.  Come join us and see the grandeur of a national art competition up close and in person. See the Events Calendar for the 33rd event when it is scheduled at the Pat Vaughn Cultural Arts Center in Powder Springs, GA. Or, sign up for our monthly newsletter to learn more about SCAA events.

Cobb County Public Libraries

The collaboration of art within a library setting started at the South Cobb Regional Library with an SCAA proposal to include library space as part of the grant project.  The SCAA 2016-17 National Endowment for the Arts project became a reality with the original ten panels of art (1000 Words, to depict reading) created by artist Miles Davis, and made with a partial medium of discarded books, was installed at the South Cobb Regional Library. One piece is permanently displayed at the Sewell Mill Library.  

As with the other SCAA public art spaces, the Library locations include new exhibits from local artists, students, groups and an occasional musical note or blending of collaborative arts. Check out the art at these limited locations because soon it will be replaced by something new and so artistic.
