The Arts Council of Lincoln County hosts a number of different exhibitions, competitions and events throughout the year in the Cochrane and Carolina Mills Galleries, located in the Lincoln Cultural Center at 403 East Main Street in Lincolnton, NC.  We showcase the area's amateur, emerging and established artists who work in mediums ranging from clay, wood, fiber, metal and glass to mixed media, oil, watercolor and acrylic painting. Please contact us if you are interested in displaying your work in our galleries.
We also offer half and full day art and/or craft classes throughout the year for adults and children and are always looking for new and exciting instructors and encourage area artists and craftspeople to do so.  If you have an interest in teaching an Art Camp class or have an idea for a class for the Arts Council, please email us or call our office at 704-732-9044.
