The South Cobb Arts Alliance (SCAA) is pleased to announce a national juried invitation to artists for its 2022 Juried Exhibition featuring all types of genre, medium, style, and technique in arts to be held at a unique 10, 499 sq ft exhibit space at The Avenue West Cobb, Marietta, Georgia and open to the public beginning August 27 until September 17, including Labor Day weekend.

Location: The Avenue West Cobb  (The Avenue West Cobb ::: Marietta ::: GA) is an open-air lifestyle shopping center in Marietta, located at 3625 Dallas Highway, Marietta, GA 30064 and has an estimated annual foot traffic of 2.5-3 million. The venue is a large open space with smaller rooms to accommodate a gift shop and interactive community events. Located 15 miles northwest of Atlanta, the location features an open-air, pedestrian friendly setting with a unique mix of retailers and restaurants to encourage guests to stroll, relax and stay awhile.

Additionally, a student artwork display will be included in the venue area for the Emerging Artists: Student Encore Exhibit of local students in the area. A Gift Shop will feature additional opportunities to purchase art from the juried artists as well as some local fine artists and crafters not included in the main juried exhibit.

More about South Cobb Arts Alliance: This exhibit will celebrate our 50th year as an all-volunteer supported nonprofit organization.  Over the years, SCAA has won grants (National Endowment for the Arts) and awards such as the Best of Cobb 2022 Nonprofit placement (https://www.mdjonline.com/cobblife/bestof/#//). And, SCAA continues to bring art to public settings and more as detailed in a recent issue of Cobb in Focus magazine (A Golden Opportunity | Cobb In Focus).
