Cultural Arts Gallery
Cultural Arts Gallery is managed by the city of Savannah's Department of Cultural Affairs. This facility exists as a venue for the promotion and education of the visual arts, via the display of contemporary art, design and fine crafts by local and regional artists. Cultural Arts Gallery serves and responds to the Savannah community with exhibitions and educational programming that strengthen awareness and stimulate dialogue through artistic expression.

Cultural Arts Gallery is a community exhibition space and is host to approximately nine shows per year. Exhibitions range from youth and solo shows to group and traveling exhibitions. Each exhibition includes an artist reception and an outreach program which enriches the learning experience for our visitors. Shows on display are free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., with occasional night and weekend hours based on programming. There is free off-street parking in the lot adjacent to the building.

The gallery is located at 9 West Henry Street (between Bull and Whitaker streets).

Deep: Stories of Savannah
March 3 - 31, 2017

Friday, March 3 | 5 - 7PM

Block by Block Mid-Point Student Showcase
Black Box Theater| Saturday, March 18 | 12PM

These photographs, by William Glaser, focus on the experiences of the student’s in the Deep Writing Program. They are comprised of student portraits, the student’s engaging in their surroundings, and them presenting their writings to the community.

Deep Inc. is a non-profit organization kick started in Savannah, Georgia that specializes in showing young students from underprivileged schools the power of writing. Whether it be poetry, short stories, or stream of consciousness, students confront the realities of their environment and how writing can be a kind of catharsis to express their fears, and a guide to their dreams and goals.

Block by Block young authors will perform their works-in-progress in conjunction with other community poets from Spitfire and WORD poetry groups on Saturday, March 18 at 12PM. This event is free and open to the public.
