This year we celebrate the 9th Annual Yadkin Arts Council Juried Exhibition. It is one of our favorite exhibits because of the diverse art it brings to our facility every year. This exhibition is a celebration of some of the finest creativity in North Carolina. Eligibility for entry is open to Fine Art artists in both 2D and 3D categories, that are a minimum of 18 years of age, and reside in North Carolina. $3,500 in combined prizes will be awarded to the best artists!
Due to the extension in Phase Two restrictions, the Juried Art Show Opening Reception and Awards Ceremony has been converted to a virtual event. Join us at 5:30pm on July 9th as we give a tour of the gallery and award our winners through Facebook Live. https://www.facebook.com/

The Welborn Gallery was named after Marion and Jewell Welborn of Boonville for the generous lead gift they made to the Center’s capital campaign. The Welborns gifted the final funds needed to close the campaign and make possible the opening of the center.
Our Welborn Gallery warmly greets every visitor to the Yadkin Cultural Arts Center as soon as you walk in the building. Our Welborn Gallery is designed to expose residents and visitors to continual and varied 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional pieces of art. You can always find something to inspire and challenge you with every visit. The Welborn Gallery operates on the same business hours as the Yadkin Cultural Arts Center: Monday thru Friday (9am-5pm) & during special events. We are closed on major federal holidays.
