Current Calls For Art


ARC of Savannah offers all Greater Savannah Area artists an opportunity to exhibit their work for sale at the 2015 Artists and Artisans Tour on June 25, 2015.

This show celebrates the magnificent historic residences and extraordinary artistic talents that, along with the food, wine, and people, make Savannah a great cultural center.

The show will take place in four of our historic homes and one garden. Artists will be selected by jury, a different panel than last year. So it will count as a juried show for your resume. We have an expanded venue so all artists are welcome to apply, even those who were in the 2014 show. Sales were good last year.

ARC Savannah is hoping to collaborate with you and our sponsor, the Downtown Neighborhood Association, in making art an essential part of the Savannah experience. We are also raising funds to further ARC's mission in Savannah. As part of that mission we will be producing a takeaway book to include each artist’s information, an image representing your work, and a photo of the artist.
