Major Announcement

Falling Rivers Gallery has lost its lease on our current building. The owners have sold the building and we have to move out by the middle of July. Your last chance to buy great art and unique gifts at our current location will be June 30th.

The Stanly Arts Guild is currently searching for a new facility to host our retail store, workshops and art shows. It may take a few months  to find a new place and get settled, but we are committed to keeping visual arts alive in Stanly County.

Meanwhile, our workshops continue for June and a few artists are having inventory reduction sales to make it easier to relocate. So stop by the gallery, check up on progress, and continue to be a part of the visual arts in Albemarle.

We’ll keep you posted here and on Facebook as we make progress toward opening in a new building.
