Savannah Arts & Galleries: Upcoming Events

Savannah is well known for the school of art and design. The city is home, in fact, to many talented artists as well as institutions displaying meaningful, unique and beautiful works of art. While visiting Savannah, we would encourage you to take in some culture. Here are some art exhibitions in the city taking place this winter.

Jepson Center Savannah museum

See the Leo Villareal exhibit at Savannah's Jepson Center.

Leo Villareal’s work is on view through June 3, 2012. A pioneer in the use of LEDs and computer imagery, Villareal has garnered acclaim for his architectural, site-specific works and his light sculptures. The exhibit at the Jepson Center is his first major traveling exhibit.

Also on view at the Jepson Center is Fresh Focus: Contemporary Photography from the Permanent Collection (through July 8, 2012). Fresh Focus showcases some of the museum’s most impressive photographic holdings.

Whether your stay at our Savannah Vacation Rentals is due to business or pleasure, it’s worth making time to visit the Jepson Center.  Please see Jepson Center for additional information.

Savannah’s City Market

Three hundred years ago, fisherman, farmers, and merchants brought their produce and wares to Savannah’s City Market. It was the center of commerce; people came daily to trade goods and information. In many ways, it was the heart of Savannah.

Savannah City Market

Walk to the City Market from any of our Savannah Vacation Homes.

Two of the original market buildings were lost to fire prior to the 1850s, and a third was torn down after the Civil War. After two hundred years of service, yet another grand old market building was destroyed in 1954–this one lost to a wrecking ball. Yet the legacy of the Savannah City Market lived on.

The historic buildings that comprise today’s City Market are spread across four blocks in Savannah Historic Downtown District. Once again, the Savannah City Market provides a place to congregate, exchange news, and do business. Locals and visitors are drawn to this open pedestrian area filled with shops, art galleries, restaurants, and live entertainment.

Dine at Tapas By Anna, Vinnie Van Go-Go’s, or the Cafe at City Market. Enjoy the art at Jim Pennington Fine Art, the A.T. Hun Gallery, and the Stephen Kasun Gallery. Shop for clothes, sweets, cigars and books. The City Market has it all.

It takes about 15 minutes to walk to the City Market from our Savannah Vacation Rentals on Broughton Street, and about 10 minutes to walk there from our Savannah Vacation Home on West Liberty Street. Guests take advantage of the close proximity to visit it frequently for food, art, shopping, and to feel the pulse of Savannah.
