The downtown district of West Jefferson North Carolina becomes bustling with excitement every second Friday throughout the summer months and again at the holiday season. ALL GALLERY CRAWLS ARE FROM 5:00PM TO 8:00PM. Art galleries and studios feature local and regional artists. Gallery crawls are an opportunity for folks to stroll the streets of downtown and visit the many galleries and meet the artists in a casual open house event. The Ashe County Arts Council showcases local artists work with rotating exhibits and special events throughout the year. Also, West Jefferson is the site of 15+ murals that create a walking tour throughout downtown reflecting the area’s history and unique mountain character. And don’t miss all the painted fire hydrants and pedestals scattered around town.
New, creative, innovative works continue to emerge from local Ashe County's artists. The galleries and shops are alive with colors, shapes and textures that invite the explorer to experience something new and exciting. Downtown galleries and shops are full of one of a kind paintings, photography, pottery, stained glass, fiber arts, furniture, toys, jewelry, and many more handcrafted items. During the Crawl artists will be on hand to meet and greet and display their latest works of art. Participating in the crawl:
