The Caldwell Arts Council has announced a new twist on its annual Art Around Caldwell Studio Tour, expanding it to a daylong festival and adding another popular art form to the popular event.
In recent years, the Art Around Caldwell Studio Tour has featured Caldwell County artists and crafters who open their homes and studios for a celebration of local artwork of all kinds. This year, the Caldwell Arts Council is expanding the event and inviting brewers from Caldwell, Catawba and Burke counties to join with visual artists in a central location for a fun, new event with proceeds going toward the Caldwell Arts Council.
The Caldwell Arts Council presents monthly and quarterly exhibits, education and collection programs that foster cultural arts in Caldwell County. Located at 601 College Avenue SW near downtown Lenoir, hours are 9am-5pm, Tuesday-Friday. There is no admission charge, although donations are gratefully accepted.
