This is the 19th annual Art of the Carolinas trade show and workshops we've put together for you. And this year is even better than it has been in the past! We are offering over 100 workshops in literally every medium you might be interested in. Art professionals fly in from all over the country to offer you the latest instruction in your choice of art and application.
Workshops begin on Thursday, November 14th, 2019.

On the other side of the hotel in the Grand Ballroom and Prefunction area, is the trade show itself. Here is where the vendors set up their booths with all kinds of fantastic art supplies for you to see, try and ask questions about. Bargain prices are everywhere! You'll see lots of free demonstrations and you'll be able to speak directly with the manufacturers about any questions you may have concerning their products.

We offer a free limo to and from our retail store during the trade show hours for your convenience! Go ahead and treat yourself to a relaxing ride. It’s just right up the street and very worth your while. Introduce yourself to Tom Dowd, our store manager. He and his staff will be happy to show you around the store and assist you in any way possible.

Fun for the entire family! Save the date and experience an art event like no other for the entire family. FREE ENTRY to the exhibit! See all major brands of supplies. Demo and try them out. Get free samples while supplies last. Bring the entire family for a great time. Kids welcome to create art at the demo stations.
