Autumn in the Western North Carolina Mountains finds thousands of visitors traveling to the region to observe its amazing fall foliage. Artists come from far & wide to Historic Downtown Hendersonville to celebrate art and share their stories with the community during the annual Art on Main event.
The Art League of Henderson County created Art on Main in 1959 to provide local artists the opportunity to show their work in a relaxed atmosphere while meeting the public to sell their paintings. The original show was two-dimensional work only. Artists casually displayed their art on park benches and planters on Main Street in Hendersonville , while the public strolled through downtown. Eventually, artists from outside the region were invited to participate as well. The show still enjoys the involvement of several artists who have been participating for nearly 30 years.
