The Exhibition Galleries
The Willson Exhibit Room and Hall Gallery feature rotating visual art exhibitions. Check our calendar for current and upcoming exhibits. You may see everything from local student art to well-known regional artists to traveling exhibitions curated by professionals in their field.
We also organize an annual juried art competition, usually on exhibit in November and December. Open to residents of the area, we include separate divisions for high school, college, and adults, each with cash prizes.
August – October 2020
The Athens Area Council for the Arts is excited to announce the opening of our second Visual Arts Committee exhibit, an exhibition open to the members of AACA’s Visual Arts Committee. The exhibit hosts nearly 30 pieces from four of our VAC members: Clarice Baggett, Sandy Brown, Stefani Burchfield, and Jan Burleson.
AACA is grateful to the Tennessee Arts Commission for sponsorship of this and our other programming currently.
