Over 80 Artists Showcased in Downtown Statesville for Art Crawl this Weekend!

The 2023 Fall Art Crawl will take place Friday, September 15, from 5:30–8:30 pm. The Art Crawl will showcase more than 80 artists in 46 different galleries, shops and businesses scattered throughout Downtown Statesville.

This free event welcomes everyone to come downtown and stroll through the shops, meet the artists, and enjoy many different styles and mediums of art. Art Crawl deepens the community’s commitment and appreciation for the arts by highlighting talented artists of all levels and experience. Guests can enjoy music, browse through the shops, and then stay late for live music, food, and libations at one of our many restaurants and bars. A program/map directing attendees to all the locations and listing all participating artists will be available at each location. You never know what you will find along the route—jewelry, pottery, acrylic and oil paintings, woodturning, sculpture and so much more! Find a piece you love, make a purchase, and support local artists!

Get LIVE in the ‘Ville! Check out for all the live music happening in Downtown Statesville throughout Art Crawl.

Be sure to take advantage of the many restaurants, bars and coffee shops throughout the evening. Reminder that there is now a Social District that allows pedestrians to walk the sidewalks with beverages purchased at participating locations and in the proper containers.
