SOUTHWORKS is a national juried art exhibition hosted by the Oconee Cultural Arts Foundation. Since its inception, it has been one of the premier art exhibitions in the region as it brings in several hundred applications from talented artists across the nation. All the exhibit entries are judged in an anonymous fashion by the juror. This process requires each piece of artwork to be accepted or denied based solely upon the level of quality each piece exhibits in relation to the other entries. An opening reception will be held Friday, April 6 from 6 to 9 p.m. Gallery hours are Tuesday – Saturday, 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
