CUMMING, Ga  — The Sawnee Artists Association presents its second annual Colors of Fall art show at Sexton Hall in Cumming.

With art by more than 100 local artists, the show will feature a variety of artistic mediums, including oils, acrylics, watercolor, colored pencil, photography, and various three dimensional mediums.

Attendance is free, but the art will be up for sale by the individual artists, giving everyone attending the opportunity to support artists from the SAA as well as other local artists.

The show is juried, requiring each artist to submit pieces to a panel of eight jurors, who vote on which two pieces from each artist to include.

Carol Kjellsen, an SAA member who will also be showing her art at the show, said Sawnee Artists Association has provided art for Sexton Hall, a center for active adults, for some time when the center suggested the art show.

“It is very good exposure for the artists,” said Kjellson.

The Colors of Fall show is one of three events that the SAA hosts each year.

In addition to Colors of Fall, there is a show for members of the SAA in March and their arts and crafts show, “Christmas in Central Park,” in December.

“[These shows] are an effort to expose the community to the arts,” said Kjellson.
