On display January 14 - February 26

The Yadkin Cultural Arts Center delights in presenting a collection of works by the Yadkin Arts Council’s Artist Members in the Welborn Gallery from January 7 – February 26 of 2021. This exhibit will showcase pieces that reflect their experiences and emotions brought on during 2020.
The Yadkin Arts Council takes every opportunity to provide the citizens of Yadkin County with compelling and inspiring art, especially art created by their talented neighbors. Patrons always have a chance to experience art by the Art-Me Members when they visit the Red Wall Gallery, but this January, they are giving these artists even more exposure and will be displaying their works in the Welborn Gallery as well.
What is an Artist Member and how do you become one you might ask? An Artist Member is an artist from Yadkin or the surrounding counties who has an interest in producing, selling, teaching, and joining a network of other artists facilitated by the Arts Council staff. Any local artist is welcome to be a member and can showcase as many mediums as they like throughout the year on the Red Wall Gallery. These pieces can be for sale with only a small commission retained by the Yadkin Arts Council. In addition, Artist Members are encouraged to teach classes in the Yadkin Cultural Arts Center’s art classroom The Art Place. The Council’s existing courses range from printmaking, to alcohol inks, mosaic pendants, and more. Not only will you find numerous teaching opportunities, but the Yadkin Arts Council will also work to help promote classes and gallery works on their robust social media and e-news followings. Lastly, the Yadkin Arts Council’s website features an Artisan Directory which serves as a digital platform for each member which includes a professional bio and photos for each artist.
It is easy to join! Just go to to learn more and pay the $35 yearly fee. For questions, feel free to email,, or call 336.679.2941.

History of the Gallery
