Curious about the story behind the history of exhibitions?
The Gallery at Grace Centre uniquely features the work of artists in western North Carolina. The Gallery, which is owned and supported by Grace Mills River, is designed to help establish the work of new and emerging artists.
Displaying art through more than 1,000 square feet of beautifully lit wall space, Grace Mills River’s vision and desire is to build relationships with artists in the community by recognizing and encouraging the essential role art plays in our unique culture. We care deeply about the art and the artist.
For more than a decade, Grace Mills River has displayed the work of hundreds of local artists across a wide range of media. In addition to solo and group shows, we also exhibit an annual fine art juried show.
We try to make the artist’s experience as seamless and convenient as possible. Once a work (or exhibition) is selected, the artist is invited to an opening reception hosted by Grace Mills River and attended by many from our community. We also promote the events through our website, bulletins, and email updates. Because Grace Centre is also the home of Grace Mills River, the gallery generates a good deal of traffic -- as many as 600 people view an exhibition each week.
