  • 2017 Season exhibition proposals... The Acworth Cultural Art Center's Main Street Gallery in the heart of historic downtown Acworth will be reviewing proposals for small group exhibits in the Main Street Gallery for the coming year. With over 100 linear feet of wall space, our objective is to create a series of exciting 2 and 3 dimensional exhibits that represent both artistic excellence and compelling interest to our community.  The exhibit ideas can be based around a theme or concept, method or media.  Any artist or group of artists may submit an exhibit proposal.  A advisory board of professional artists will review the submissions and select the best suggestions for consideration.  Artists set their own prices and will certainly be able to sell their work.  There is no fee, but the Gallery will receive thirty percent of all sales.  Artists or their representatives will be responsible of delivery and pickup of their work.  The deadline for proposals is November 1.  Contact the Gallery for more information.
