Glynn visual arts is the art hub of the island of Saint Simons. There is always a standing art exhibit to see. And art classes go on every day on everything from pottery to painting to jewelry making and more and more. A must visit while vacationing on St. Simons Island. And you support the arts as well.

We were visiting the area and were told of a photography guild show here. The hostess was very friendly and introduced us to the show. There was plenty of room available, lighting was good and it was a reasonably good show.

GVA is a treat with lots to see including a lovely gift shop. For those visiting for awhile, courses are available. The art is varied and interesting. Lectures are well designed and very informative without being too long.

Went to both the new location and the old one. The new location had 3 artists exhibited and one in particular had outstanding water colors. The old location has nice oil paintings.

A great place if you are a traveling artist and want a place to paint. Wednesday afternoons is open studio. Just drop in and start to paint. Other artist drop in and are willing to offer help or advice if you need it. Also a great place to pick up a piece of local art

The new home for the Association is by the airport and away from the busy village area. It has lots of space for various types of artists to work and show their art. There are classes and displays are changed often, so visit often.

The restyled building just off Demere and Skylane Road provides a beautiful gallery space, roomy classroom and lovely gift shop. There are several classes to choose from for adults and children in art, photography and pottery.
