What's the purpose of AVLarts.com?
AVLarts.com promotes the visual arts in Asheville by featuring local artists, galleries and art resources.
How do I get listed?
AVLarts.com is designed to be a valuable community resource. If you have any suggestions to make this website better, please contact me. Specifically, if you have a recommendation for an artist or gallery to be added to one of the the directories please send me information. (Note: submission does not guarantee listing.) By the way, there is never a charge for being listed on AVLarts.com. And yes, you are welcome to suggest yourself, your gallery or your resource.
Can I get listed if I'm outside of Asheville?
Artists are considered to be listed if they live, work or show in Asheville. In other words, if they are in some way part of the Asheville arts community. Galleries and events are considered if they are in Buncombe County or surrounding counties, including Henderson, Polk, Transylvania, Haywood, Madison, Yancy, McDowell and Rutherford — basically within an hour drive of Asheville.
Can I advertise on AVLarts.com?
Well, yes and no. From one point of view AVLarts.com is one big "advertisement" for the wonderful visual arts community in the Asheville area. However, you may notice that there are no banner ads or paid advertisements. I kind of like it crisp and uncluttered and I plan to keep it that way.
Who's behind it all?
My name is Brennen McElhaney. I'm the creator of AVLarts.com and solely responsible for its content. I'm also an artist. To see my artwork and read about me visit BMcElhaney.com.
