Support the ARts
Participation in the Arts is a critical component of building a community.
Founded in Jackson County, North Carolina in 1976, this mostly volunteer organization has helped thousands of residents in our mountain community by providing culturally rich programs and assistance with artistic pursuits.
The Jackson County Art Council’s efforts are made possible through the financial support of private and public donations. We are eternally grateful for our volunteers, artists and sponsors who keep the arts alive.
