If the creative arts are your thing we have plenty to keep you looking, learning and creating seven days a week. The Center
Galleries offer three gallery spaces with a a full schedule of group and one person shows throughout the year and ongoing retail
displays for personal shopping or gift giving. You'll find a great selection of visual arts, both fine and folk, jewelry and wearable art
and craft - from casual pottery to fine woodworking.

fine arts and crafts. Interested in Folk Pottery? Visit our Folk Pottery Museum of Northeast Georgia, a stunning
Folk Pottery Museum
piece of award winning architecture that houses beautiful permanent and revolving exhibits on the art and craft of clay.
Discovery Tours are offered FREE every Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoon at the Sautee Nacoochee
Center. They begin at 1 pm in the Folk Pottery Museum of Northeast Georgia, where tour guides conduct a
45-minute tour of the Museum. The informal "front porch" style discussion is designed to unearth the unique
talents of artists from the Appalachian Foothills of Georgia while focusing on the Museum's current exhibit.
After that, the tour becomes self-guided and moves to the Art Gallery Shops in the Sautee Nacoochee
Cultural Center to view a wide array of original, one-of-a-kind art by 200+ local artists. Visitors will enjoy
viewing the current juried show displayed in hallways of the 1928 Nacoochee School Building. Gallery
volunteers are available to answer questions and assist with sales.
The Folk Pottery Museum of Northeast Georgia is located at the junction of Garland Bristol Road and Hwy
255 North, (283 Highway 255 North) Sautee, GA 30571. For more information on the Discovery Tour call
