On Friday, the Sawnee Association of the Arts hosted a quaint event to unveil the second installation of paintings at the Forsyth County Courthouse.

The 15 paintings were hung in the grand jury room and victims witness assistance office this past May.

Twelve are in the grand jury room, and each piece depicts a scene of nature in Forsyth County, from the Mashburn Pecan Grove to Settendown Creek to the Chattahoochee River.

Three more hang in the victim’s witness assistance office, and each depicts a piece of Georgia pride; there is one of a brown thrasher (the state bird), live oak (state tree) and Cherokee rose (state flower).
