August ART's Month

August Arts Month

Like all of Appalachia, the NC High Country was historically isolated from the conveniences of city life.  People here sustained homesteads through hard work and learned to utilize that they harvested to create what they needed.

In the heart of every town and hamlet you will find shops and museums that present authentic crafts and origianl artwork as well as offer one-of-a-kind gift treasures.  In the month of August 2019, you will find unique art events only found in the High Country such as the Ashe County Studio Tour and the Sculpture Walk at Chetola Resort.  There is an art to interest everyone in the NC Mountains!
