The Asheville Area Arts Council is the collective voice for the arts in Buncombe County, advancing Buncombe County by providing access to resources, developing innovative collaborations, and fostering creativity in the community. We strive to show work which is well crafted, illustrates an unusual perspective, utilizes unique methods, is powerfully expressive, interesting, challenging, and engaging. We are inspired to show work regardless of its commercial value, though we hope that work in our galleries will attract patrons who are interested in something new and exploratory. We see our exhibition spaces as a way to showcase the talent within our area of service, Buncombe County. Exhibitions are selected based on artistic merit and pursuant to the AAAC’s mission of delivering resources, developing innovative collaborations, and fostering creativity in the community.
