Art in Milledgeville

Milledgeville’s Creative Culture

Milledgeville may be small but the art scene certainly isn’t, thanks to exhibits at galleries like Ennis Hall and the John Marlor Arts Center. Get in on the creativity by viewing local and nationally renowned artist exhibitions, or by submitting your own art to be displayed in the gallery halls of Milledgeville!

Big ClickThe John Marlor Arts Center, part of Milledgeville Allied Arts, is getting ready to host the ninth annual “The Big Click” photography competition and exhibition. Featuring photographs from local and regional artists, entries to the exhibition will be accepted November 16 – 20 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Marlor House.

  1. Hi Erin! Just found this blog today; it’s great! I would love to talk to you about how we could partner to raise awareness of the annual Milledgeville Film Festival- are you familiar with our group? For 2016, our third year, we had over 70 international filmmakers attend panels, workshops, and screenings over a 5 day period in Milledgeville! Over 250 films were submitted for review from more than 30 countries! This is an incredible asset to our community, an international film festival that is rapidly growing and well on its way to becoming an Academy-accredited partner. Please call me anytime: 478-451-9601. We are working on a variety of ways to promote next year’s dates of April 26- 30, 2017; our mission is to get as much campus and community awareness as possible. We need to fill every seat for every event, and many of the activities are FREE and open to the Public! I look forward to hearing from you:). Take care, Tamara
