Over the years, Downtown Statesville’s Art Crawl has grown to be a crowd favorite each fall and spring! The Spring Art Crawl will be Friday, April 28 from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm. With over 75 artists in 39 different locations, there is no shortage of local talent to admire! This free event invites all ages to come stroll the sidewalks of Historic Downtown Statesville.
Art Crawl deepens the community’s commitment to the arts by highlighting talented artists of all levels and experience. At the Spring Art Crawl, you will be fascinated by the work of Edrie Knight, a lifelong, award-winning, 91-year-old artist with many adventures and stories to tell. You will also meet Haden, the 10-year-old boy who sells his drawings to help his critically ill brother be “happy.”
A program/map directing attendees to all the locations and listing all participating artists will be available at each location. Along the route, you will find many forms of art—jewelry, pottery, acrylic and oil paintings, wood turning, and so much more. Live music inside and outside (weather permitting) at different locations will add to the artistic feel of the evening. We invite you to come browse the shops and businesses, dine at the restaurants, admire the talent in our community and beyond, and discover all that Downtown has to offer.
We especially would like to acknowledge our Art Crawl sponsors – Sheri Bistreich and Associates, a financial advisory practice, Ameriprise Financial and Statesville Jewelry & Loan for their support of this event. Parking during the Art Crawl is available on-street and in 9 public lots throughout the business district.

The 2018 Downtown Statesville Fall Art Crawl is set for Friday, September 14 from 5:30–8:30 pm. The Art Crawl will showcase more than 40 artists in over 30 different galleries, shops, and businesses scattered throughout the heart of Downtown Statesville. It is self-guided and you can begin the Crawl at any location. Just look for the sidewalk markers indicating a participating business. A program/map directing attendees to all the locations and listing all participating artists will be available at each location.
The Art Crawl concept is simple – come downtown and walk from location to location, enjoy music, meet the artists and enjoy their work (maybe make a purchase), browse through the shops hosting the artists, and stay late for live music, food, and drinks at one of our many restaurants and bars.
The Art Crawl happens twice a year- Spring and Fall, and is a free event that offers a great time to be downtown, visit and shop local businesses, meet artists, and enjoy their work.
