Imagine if there were no color in the schools, no art on the walls, on the sides of the buildings, along the road side. Imagine if there were no Arts presence in Mitchell and Yancey Counties—no music, theatre, visual opportunities, no kids learning how to tap into their creativity, no artists living next door? That would be a world without Toe River Arts. 

Our members are the people who believe — like we do — that arts and culture are big picture, big meaning, and value in our region. It’s our mission to promote arts awareness and advocate its worth, both locally and across the country. Whether you’re an artist, arts patron, business, or cultural organization, you and the arts community benefit when you join Toe River Arts. As with handcrafted mugs, one handle does not fit all—our supporters are unique, so we’ve tailored the levels of membership.

Memberships now renew in August. If you are a new member or a member who renewed before June of 2017, the prorated membership fee is listed below.
If you are a new* or renewing member who would like to take advantage of the Toe River Arts promotional benefits (LEVELS C/D/E), please note the inaugural discounts.

Choose the “handle” level that best suits your commitment, then click on the membership form to download, fill it out and return it with your check or you can click on the PayPal option (also accepting Visa, MasterCard). Be certain to fill out the online membership information and hit submit.

Got a question? Please give us a call at 828.682.7215 or email.
