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 painting, photography, and ceramics. 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.

Artists included in Sweetwater’s Permanent Collection: Leslie Ansley, Miranda Brandon, Aaron M Brown, Derrick Burbel, Joseph C. Cirelli, Michael Crease, Frank Dininno, Sue Eddy, Keith Ellis, Jeff Falk, Bill Feduska, Mark Gualtieri, Myka Hayden, Trevor John Herceg, Sisavanh Houghton, Catherine Kelly, Mandy Kendall, Nadya Lapets, Constance Menniti, Tybre Newcomer, Norma Nieto, Ronald Nigro, Aysha Peltz, Joyce Werwie Perry, Jebby Potter, Mabi Ponce De Leon, Anne Roecklein, Shana Salaff, Michael Paul Smith, Cassie Staub, Maggie Sullivan, Dr. Clarence Talley, Sr., Richard V. Thompson, & Shawn Watrous.
