  • Current and Upcoming Exhibitions

    The Bascom’s major exhibitions highlight the work of the artists who live and work in our region, Bascom instructors and students, Artist Fellows and Residents, as well as world-renowned artists whose work might not otherwise be seen in this region. The Bascom's 7 galleries and the Winkler Sculpture and Nature Trail are host to approximately 30 exhibitions each year, which pair with our Outreach and Education departments to attract 35,000 visitors to The Bascom. Free guided tours are available upon advanced request.



    “I liked the sculptures that were outside that we could go inside of. They are cool shapes. I liked walking around outside and going down to the river.
    We only went to the Bascom on a certain day but I wish we could go every day.”
    - Katie Fox, Highlands School, Age 11


    “Viewing art at The Bascom has always been a fascinating and insightful experience for me. It has opened my eyes to various mediums and of art, and given me inspiration for what I could do with my own art in the future. It's amazing to me to see how other artists can express emotion and thought without using words, and it makes me hope that one day I will be able to envoke the same things with my art.”
    – Sophie Biaso, 2016 Bascom Young Artist Fellow, Student at Rabun Gap Nacoochee School, Age 14
