Nestled in a historic 1930s Works Progress Administration building in downtown West Jefferson, the Ashe County Arts Council has long been committed to promoting the arts as a hallmark of an active, engaged community.

Located at 303 School Avenue, the building provides local artists and craftsman with a place to come together and showcase their work through a variety of concerts, literary events, meetings and rentals each year. The Arts Center also boasts a gallery shop that sells the work of more than 100 artists and crafts artisans.
