The North Gwinnett Arts Association (NGAA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit art organization dedicated to promoting the appreciation of local art through exhibition, festivals and other arts education. Based in Suwanee, Georgia, the NGAA maintains an open membership policy where artists of all types, as well as art lovers, are welcome to be a part of the organization.
Each year, NGAA is proud to present the Rosemary Benavides Williams Student Art Scholarship to college-bound high school students planning to major in the field of visual arts.
The NGAA hosts three events in the beautiful Suwanee Town Center: Arts in the Park, Jazz Festival, and Suwanee Classic Car Show. Both events draw large audiences and the proceeds fund the student art scholarships and NGAA art initiatives.
In 2016, the North Gwinnett Arts Association opened Suwanee’s first Center for the Arts in Suwanee Town Center. Arts and cultural activities are at the heart of a community. The NGAA helps to make Suwanee a more attractive place to live while contributing to the ongoing knowledge within our community, bringing the area to life.
The NGAA welcomes volunteers and donations at any time. Please contact us below to inquire about volunteer opportunities with us!
KATHY DE CANO
COME SEE HER WORK ON DISPLAY THROUGH FEBRUARY 29TH!
Kathy de Cano has expressed herself visually since she was very young. Her mother taught her to paint with oils when she was about 13, and she continued to take art classes in school as a young person and off and on throughout her adulthood as well. Her work is mainly comprised of mixed media and acrylic on canvas. She has also participated in several mural projects in North Carolina and Georgia. The North Carolina murals were themed around a traditional Amish bakery and Cherokee history. One of the murals in Georgia benefitted a therapeutic center for children with disabilities. Besides her work as an artist, Kathy has been a Spanish teacher for about 30 years and does art integration classes at her school in collaboration with the art teachers there. Kathy is a member of the North Gwinnett Arts Association in Suwanee, Georgia, where she resides. Her work has been exhibited in venues in Swain County, North Carolina, where she lived for 17 years. In Georgia, she has been in shows in Suwanee, Sandy Springs, Sugar Hill, Johns Creek, Lawrenceville, and Norcross. Her studio is at Expressions Fine Art Gallery and Artist Studios in Lawrenceville, Georgia, where she collaborates with four other studio artists and continues to express herself through painting.
