Please mark you calendar and join us for our inaugural Art in the Park! Given our Park’s beautiful setting, this fine art show will focus exclusively on landscape and wildlife art featuring scenes of western North Carolina. Acceptable media include painting, photography and fiber art but does not include wood carvings or other craft items. In this inaugural year, there will be no application nor booth fees to the artist, but donations to FOG are always welcome. All works may be exhibited for sale to the Park’s visitors, and all event activities will occur at the Gorges State Park Visitors Center.

Art in the Park will kick off on Friday, May 18, 2018, with a reception from 5 to 7 PM. The main two days of exhibits will be May 19 and 20, 2018 from 9 AM to 4 PM each day. As always, there are no admission fees to the Park and its exhibits.
