Gwinnett 200: Art exhibits travel Gwinnett throughout bicentennial year


As part of the Gwinnett 200 Bicentennial Celebration, an art exhibit featuring local artists will be placed in various locations throughout the county from January 16 until December 18.
        
The Gwinnett 200 Bicentennial Art Exhibition celebrates Gwinnett’s rich history by bringing together original art, photos, and book excerpts from several Gwinnett County artists. On display will be artwork and book excerpts from the late Charlotte Edwards Howerton, oil paintings by artist Peggy Sullens, mixed media artwork by several Kudzu Art Zone artists, and a pictorial documentary of historic Gwinnett County.

Pieces of the exhibition will rotate among four locations: the Gwinnett Historic Courthouse in downtown Lawrenceville, George Pierce Park Community Recreation Center in Suwanee, Bethesda Park Senior Center in Lawrenceville, Peachtree Corners Branch Library, and Pinckneyville Park Community Recreation Center in Norcross.
