ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

Suwanee Arts Center invites all artists to apply for the upcoming exhibition.

Spring – it’s such a special time of year. A promise of new beginnings when the earth seems to come to life again! Almost magical, filled with vibrant color, texture, floral aromas, and beautiful scenery. Animals awaken. Birds sing and sweeten the sunrise and add mystery to the night.

Aparent in nature, yet humans feel energized and refreshed. What does Spring mean to you?
