Permanent Collection

Sweetwater Center for the Arts' permanent collection started with generous donations by regional artists and collectors over 10 years ago. Through the years, Sweetwater's permanent collection has grown to include works from regional as well as national artists in a variety of media, with a focus on paintings and drawings. A large majority of the works in our collection were included in Sweetwater gallery exhibitions prior to acquisition. 

Sweetwater has recently expanded our acquisition program to include purchase awards. We are excited by this new development, as it will allow us to not only better direct the collection, but offer more rewards to our exhibiting artists.
