NEW FIBER CENTER is now open at the FOOTHILLS ARTS COUNCIL – “We proudly announce our newest associate member the Yadkin Valley Fiber Center! With a full workshop schedule beginning in May 2018, the Center will bring enthusiasts and top-notch fiber instructors to the Foothills Arts Council (in Elkin) from all across the country. We look forward to working with YVFC founder Leslie Fesperman and share in her excitement for all the program will bring to our community. We can't possibly thank the Yadkin Cultural Arts Center enough for their support in the programs move to Elkin and for their vital role in the programs incubation and development.”

Artfolk Studios - Located downtown on Court St, this gallery's name has changed (was previously Elkin Artisan Market as shown in header above).  

Local artist Tory Casey uses this as her artist workspace. For events, such as the downtown Elkin Art Hike held the 2nd Saturday of each month, this location opens to display her beautiful work to the public. Sometimes, other local artists join in and share the display space. It's quite a treat!
