Statesville, NC – The 2018 Fall Art Crawl will take place Friday, September 14, from 5:30-8:30pm. The Art Crawl will showcase more than 50 artists in 36 different galleries, shops, and businesses scattered throughout the heart of 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!

At the 2018 Fall Art Crawl, guests can be the first to see four brand new sculptures in the Statesville Sculpture Garden. These unique pieces of artwork vary in size and material, as well as style. Stop by and see the new additions that are part of the annual revolving exhibit of sculptures in the garden.
