The Anson County Arts Council was formed in 1978 by local art enthusiasts. The Arts Council is a non-profit organization dependent upon funds coming from foundations, grants, memberships and fundraisers. Our partnership with Anson County Schools and South Piedmont Community College enables us to provide programs, residencies and summer activities.
Local artists are encouraged to showcase their art mediums in our local gallery. The Arts Council brings a wide variety of art and art forms to Anson County, striving to enrich the cultural life of our community.
Other programs include theatre, music, dance, visual arts, creative writing, poetry, art exhibits, special events and festivals.
