Located in the heart of East Tennessee, we are surrounded by beauty and by talented people.

Our Mission: To support all of the arts and artists in our communities. For artists, this means that the Council intends to develop more opportunities for you to showcase your work at more and better venues and compile an artist/venue database that will allow new opportunities to find you and for you to find new opportunities.


Our next meeting will be February 19 at 6:30 PM at Shenanigans next to the American Legion Hall in Rockwood. Bring something you’ve made or you’re working on for Show-and-Tell, and finger food if you want. See you there!

Support the ACRC

See three ways to support us at the bottom of this page. Two options don’t require you to spend one dime extra. Shop as you usually do and donate your Ebates, or use Wellzoo to donate for viewing web pages you’ll like when you open a new window in your browser. You only have to keep it open a few seconds for a penny to be added to the total.
