Kudzu invites you to our ACP exhibit for 2011. This year we feature work by 12 of our members. Kudzu Art Zone is a 100+ membership art group located in Norcross in a gallery a half block off Main St. The mission of Kudzu is to support the growth and development of the artist community and expand the awareness of visual arts through education, exhibitions and special programming. Outstanding teachers are brought in several times during each year to conduct classes for members and others that might be interested. We also have members that rent space and work in the gallery on a regular basis. We welcome you to visit the gallery and to visit historic Norcross at the same time. Art work by our members is displayed at restaurants and shops in the downtown area.
