September 08, 2013CUMMING, Ga. – The Sawnee Artists Association hosted their second annual Colors of Fall art show at Sexton Hall in Cumming on Saturday, Aug. 31. The exhibit, which lasted from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., featured art work from local artists and included a variety of artistic mediums. The show included paintings, photographs and three-dimensional art crafts that were all judged by eight jurors.
"The point of this event is to expose the community to the arts and to let people know about the incredible talent we have in our area," said Kris Straukas, vice president of the SAA since March.
Straukas also teaches art classes at Sexton Hall during the week to students in the Cumming and Forsyth areas.
"We are trying to turn this exhibit into an annual event and will be having our next art show in December," said Straukas.
