Mary Hambidge/Hambidge Center

The Hambidge Center for the Arts and Sciences was founded in 1934 by Brunswick native Mary Hambidge. A free spirit, early feminist and fabric designer of genius, Hambidge achieved international fame for her unique creations beginning in the Depression years and lasting until her death in the 1970s. Mary Hambidge's legacy would be the Hambidge Center, a 600-acre artist community located in the mountains of northeast Georgia's Rabun County.

The Hambidge Center today serves as a refuge for artists seeking to renew their creative spirit away from the fast-paced demands of our high-tech world. State of the Arts visits the Hambidge Center to take a closer look at its visionary founder, its rich history, and the artists who explore and expand their talents in this beautiful setting.
