For more than 60 years, the Quinlan has provided extensive opportunities in the arts to the growing, culturally rich community of Gainesville. Located on historic Green Street in downtown Gainesville, we are the only facility of this size and scope in Northeast Georgia, and the oldest arts organization north of Atlanta.

A haven for artists, collectors, students and art appreciators, the Quinlan has something to suit everyone's artistic needs. Initially known as the Gainesville Art Association, the Quinlan can trace its origin to a 1946 meeting of artists.

The current facility was initially dedicated in 1964 and expanded in 2004. There are five gallery spaces that host at least seven major exhibitions annually, featuring original two- and three-dimensional works of art in all media ranging from realism, folk art, abstracts, impressionistic works, landscapes, still life, portraits and photography.
