For Love of Athens Photo Contest Gallery Exhibit

For the Love of Athens is a photo contest and exhibition celebrating the people and places of Athens County. 

The For Love of Athens show will be moving from Arts West, where it has been on display for the past month, to the Athens Community Center for an encore showing! This gallery show is a new edition that the Community Center is very excited to display!

 The show is FREE and open to the public.
