Sometimes they have special events for kids, or music programs, and they always have exhibits of paintings, pottery, and other art forms. Yesterday they had kids make reverse-image prints, and ceramic figures for pendants.

Enjoyed our visit here. Various rooms with various displays, including some nice childrens work we really enjoyed. The upper gallery had some especially nice work on display. Very nice.

I was impressed with the artist' spaces. There was more than one show in the space when I went. Fits in nicely with the funky hippie vibe in Floyd. Will come back for sure!

The room that is used for yoga is absolutely wonderful... I happened to ask for directions in the main building too, and this place seems to really be a community hub...

As one of my visiting relatives said, "It's surprising that the 'little' town of Floyd has such sophisticated art." Right on the mark! Floyd County has art exhibits of all genres of art. The Floyd Center for the Arts is a true gem!

This location is worth the time to review with local favor. Be sure to plan to purchase some original art here and in near by locations.

I just took a class with Emilio Santini, a wonderful glass artist. The class was fabulous, and I learned a great deal. I highly recommend this for anyone looking to add to their skills.

This place is really wonderful! It has so many classes, ceramics, torch work glass, silver smithing, wood working at a separate location. I really wish I lived around this place!

No entry fee, though donations are appreciated. There's a jar in the foyer for them. The classes have fees...very reasonable ones...but no charge to go in to appreciate the art and maybe see some artists practicing their... More
