ArtSpring is a steward of Tucker County Arts. We support learning, emerging, and established artists across the spectrum of contemporary and traditional creative arts. We offer direct support to artists, promote Tucker County as an arts destination, act as the gateway to the arts of Tucker County and facilitate the engagement between the creative community and the public.
Tucker County is a nationally recognized model of a progressive rural arts community that is a highly attractive destination for arts patrons and tourists. Artists thrive with affordable housing and studio space, abundant resources, and a vibrant, collaborative culture that supports student and working artists at all levels. World class galleries, exhibition spaces, performance venues and community event space provide ample public exposure for local and visiting artists. Strong programs for visiting artists and residencies encourage collaboration and broaden perspectives. The local community enjoys and supports the arts in public life and at all levels of education. The arts contribute significantly to the local economy; businesses and government reciprocate with robust infrastructure and developmental support for artists and art businesses.
ArtSpring is the key coordinating body for Tucker County arts. Our professional staff, interns and volunteers are housed in a dedicated facility. We produce the annual ArtSpring Festival and other arts events throughout the year to boost arts tourism and sales while showcasing the creative community. For the arts community, we advocate for affordable housing and studio space; identify and present learning and career development opportunities; assist in finding and obtaining grants; support small business development and management; cultivate business relationships for the advancement of the arts; develop publicity and marketing campaigns that connect residents, second home-owners and visitors with local artists, galleries, performance venues, and arts presenters; support the presentation of non-commercial and student artists, and ensure inclusive opportunities in a variety of venues. For the general public, we work with local schools, organizations, businesses, and governments to promote life-long arts education and to advocate for the sustainability of the arts in public life.
