The ALHC was founded in 1960 with a mission to encourage and assist in the development of individual artistic talent, as well as the enjoyment of art. The organization honors this legacy by providing education grants to local schools and student artists, community outreach, and exhibitions and educational programs. The public and artists of all skill levels and “art lovers” are encouraged to attend and participate in meetings and programs.
The Art League of Henderson County meets monthly on the second Sunday of each month (except May, when it will be the 3rd Sunday) at Opportunity House, 1411 Asheville Highway, Hendersonville. A social hour usually begins around 1:30 p.m., with the meeting starting about 2 pm. An art-related presentation is offered following the meeting. Guests are welcome.
