The Suwanee Arts Center (SAC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit art organization dedicated to promoting the appreciation of local art through exhibition, festivals and other arts education. Based in Suwanee, Georgia, the SAC maintains an open membership policy where artists of all types, as well as art lovers, are welcome to be a part of the organization.
Each year, SAC is proud to present the Rosemary Benavides Williams Student Art Scholarship to college-bound high school students planning to major in the field of visual arts.
The SAC hosts three events in the beautiful Suwanee Town Center: Arts in the Park, Jazz Festival, and Suwanee Classic Car Show. Both events draw large audiences and the proceeds fund the student art scholarships and SAC art initiatives.
In 2016, the Suwanee Arts Center opened Suwanee’s first Center for the Arts in Suwanee Town Center. Arts and cultural activities are at the heart of a community. The SAC helps to make Suwanee a more attractive place to live while contributing to the ongoing knowledge within our community, bringing the area to life.
The SAC welcomes volunteers and donations at any time. Please contact us below to inquire about volunteer opportunities with us!
COME SEE HER WORK ON DISPLAY MARCH 1 - 31
Meg was raised in Columbus, GA to parents who were passionate about the cultural arts and surrounded themselves and their children with the world of art and artists, music and musicians, ballet and dancers, and Broadway. Drawing was a God-given talent for Meg, and as a child she drew and painted in her spare time, always encouraged by her parents. Meg majored in art at Florida State University, and photography at Massey Junior College in Atlanta (now the Art Institute of Atlanta). While Meg was raising her family, her art abilities were put to the side. One day, with her new-born baby in her arms, Meg picked up a writing pencil and the closest piece of paper, and drew her child in the crook of her arm. This peaked her passion to draw once more. Meg’s life is filled with color and movement, either with gardening or photography or art or music. She can be spotted at Suwanee Town Center taking candid photographs of the children at the water park, and often invites neighbors to sit for her in her home for photography shoots. Until now, Meg’s art and photography have always been given to friends and never displayed. With the recent passing of her parents who encouraged her to draw and paint, and in honor to their memory, Meg has found the motivation to exhibit her art for the first time here at the North Gwinnett Arts gallery.
