We are a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting and preserving the arts in Western North Carolina and to educating the public about the arts and crafts of the region. There are many artists and artisans in our region. We provide them with affordable venues to show and sell their work, and to educate the public about it.
One way we accomplish our mission is through an art gallery, the Arrowhead Gallery and Studios, located in downtown Old Fort, North Carolina. It is one of the largest by size in Western North Carolina. We also hold shows in other venues and host a craft fair, called the Arts Mart, for member artisans, several times during the year.
