Art at Flood Gallery
The Flood Fine Art Center is a non-profit contemporary art organization dedicated
to bringing excellent, provocative art to Asheville from artists working
around the world. We seek out art that is provocative, challenging, daring,
relevant, and important. We believe that there are great things happening
in the world of art, and we want to bring those things to Asheville. We
want to put a thumbtack on the map of the Art World. In our first three years,
we showed works by artists working in Los Angeles, Prague, New York, Georgia, Florida
and here in Asheville. In our fourth year, we hope to bring fully-funded exhibition and residency programs for professional working artists from around the world.
Programs & Special Events
Beyond promoting working artists around the globe, the Flood also hosts a variety of educational programs and special
events that promote the arts and encourage community involvement in the
artistic process. Musical performances, workshops, community art projects,
art camps, film screenings, and poetry readings are the kinds of events that the Flood
Gallery has organized and hosted.
