Add to Trip

Vibrant center in foothills beckons with exhibits, food, performances

Yadkin County sits east of Wilkes County and south of Surry, in northwestern North Carolina. It is a vibrant destination with multiple recreational opportunities. Visitors enjoy fishing and canoeing on the Yadkin River, touring one of the county’s 13 vineyards, and stopping off at the Yadkin Cultural Arts Center.  

Located on Main Street in downtown Yadkinville, the Arts Center’s mission is to enrich the lives of every citizen of Yadkin County and beyond by providing opportunities for artists, no matter what their specific creative outlet. The Yadkin Arts Center houses two galleries, a performing arts academy, private space for rent, and is home to the Willingham theatre, which can seat up to 193 guests.  

Exhibitions draw from a large pool of talented artists throughout North Carolina and the Southeast. Welborn Gallery exhibits change every two months and feature a wide variety of mediums and styles. Past exhibits have showcased woodworking, textiles, oils and acrylics, watercolor, collage, steel and glass, pottery, and furniture making. 

The Red Wall Gallery is located inside the eclectic  Center Bistro. It is the newest gallery of the Yadkin Cultural Arts Center.
