The incredible revitalization of the neighborhood has been due to many creative and enthusiastic people.

The arts play an integral role in economic and community development. We want to recognize all the incredible talent there is in the entire Southern Appalachian region and also right here in the City of Kingsport. We have a wealth of cultural assets and want to showcase visual and performing art, fine craft, traditional craft, and fine art.

The gallery side features Fine Art and Fine Craft by several nationally-acclaimed artists & craftspeople. All artwork is for sale.

There will be a series of art classes offered to the public over the next few months. There will also be professional artist studios located in the space where the public will be able to see the actual production of art work as well as interact with the artists. Spaces are still available.
