GWINNETT 200: BICENTENNIAL ART EXHIBITION WILL TRAVEL THROUGHOUT GWINNETT COUNTY IN 2018

(Lawrenceville, Ga., Dec. 26, 2017) – As part of the Gwinnett 200 Bicentennial, a traveling art exhibit by local artists will tour the county from Jan. 16 until Dec. 18 with projects on life in Gwinnett County.

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.

The public is invited to attend the free artists’ reception on Jan. 9 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Gallery Hall of the Gwinnett Historic Courthouse.
