In 1974, mountain area art enthusiasts formed the Evergreen Arts Council with a plan to build a community art center that would provide mountain area residents a place to pursue high-quality art instruction and view a wide variety of art exhibitions.
At CAE, we strive to create opportunities for people from all walks of life to engage in the arts. Our goal is to transcend differences in culture, age, ethnicity, and socioeconomics by fostering a passion for artistic expression that can be shared and appreciated by all.
The pandemic allowed us to better understand the needs and wants of our artists and community for a second addition. The re-examination of our capabilities as a community center resulted in a 5,000-square-foot architectural design.
