Now Showing!

The Main Street Gallery is delighted  to host an exciting exhibit by members of two wonderfully talented art clubs, the North Cobb Photo Club and the Art Lovers of North Cobb.   The Exhibit will be up through Saturday May 27th.

The North Cobb Photo Club  meets on the first Wednesday of each month at 9:30 AM in the library at the North Cobb Senior Center, 1400 Old Hwy 41, Acworth GA  and go on a field trip each month. At the meetings they compare photos from the last field trip and usually someone will give a demonstration or short training session. They have members who are just starting out and members with years of experience. They have members who use expensive cameras and members who use point-and-shoot cameras.  All are welcome!  

The North Cobb Art Lovers group is an informal group of talented artists, who meet and regularly show their work at the North Cobb Senior Center.  Stop by and see this amazingly talented group of artists' work.
