Art in the Park- May 18-20, 2018
The Friends of Gorges State Park is pleased to announce its first spring art show May 18 – 20, hosted by Gorges State Park. Located in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina our fine art show will focus exclusively on the landscape and wildlife of this area. Acceptable media will include painting, fiber and photography. There will be no cost to the artists and all works may be exhibited for sale to the Park visitors.  
The show will be located in the Park's Visitors Center which is open to the public everyday except December 25. The Auditorium and Classroom will be used for the artist setups and will be secured during show off hours. Exhibitors will be required to provide their own setups with chairs and a table available from the park.
