Carroll County Arts strives to exhibit, educate and inspire creativity, imagination, and an appreciation for the arts. We have been a part of the community since 1993 with hundreds of people supporting the arts by volunteering andbecoming members. This support has made it possible for Carroll County Arts to present many wonderful exhibits and to build a collection of art by local artists into an extensive visual art gallery and gift shop. Carroll County Arts also provides an outlet for the creative spirit of our community through classes and workshops and concerts. Just as important as the exhibits and art classes is the impact our non-profit organization makes on the community through its education and outreach programs. Whether you are interested in taking a class, shopping the gallery, attending a concert or sharing YOUR talents, contact Carroll County Arts and we will help you find where you belong!
