The mission of the Tannery Row Artist Colony is to encourage connections among artists and the public that fuel the heart of the creative spirit. We provide lively interactions with the arts through our community of visual artists, exhibitions, and programs. We offer hand made art, up close, and in working progress..


  • We acknowledge and respect the legacy of the artist members who built this organization.
  • We believe the arts are essential to human existence.
  • We believe in the power of artists working cooperatively as a community – for economic viability, support, feedback, and the nurturing of new ideas.
  • We value our role as a City of Buford community resource and collaboration as a means of achieving our goals.
  • We believe in artistic excellence, innovation, and all forms of creative engagement.
  • We strive to support artists at all stages of their careers from diverse communities, artistic genres, and traditions.
  • Our place within the Tannery Row defines who we are. The building’s history informs and supports our work.
