The 2019 Fall Art Crawl will take place Friday, September 13 from 5:30–8:30 pm. The Art Crawl will showcase more than 50 artists in over 40 different galleries, shops and businesses scattered throughout Downtown Statesville.
This free event welcomes everyone to come downtown and stroll through the shops, meet the artists and enjoy many different styles and mediums of art. Art Crawl deepens the community’s commitment and appreciation for the arts by highlighting talented artists of all levels and experience. Guests can enjoy music, browse through the shops, and then stay late for live music, food, and drinks at one of our many restaurants and bars. A program/map directing attendees to all the locations and listing all participating artists will be available at each location. You never know what you will find along the route—jewelry, pottery, acrylic and oil paintings, woodturning, sculpture and so much more! Find a piece you love, make a purchase, and support local artists!
New to Art Crawl this year will be FREE trolley rides presented by Griffin Insurance/Nationwide! Guests can trolley around beautiful Downtown Statesville to see all the participating artists and locations!
