Since our beginning in 2002, the purpose of the Foothills Painters has been to promote and invigorate the creative talents of its members, to provide an exchange of ideas between its artists, to expose to the Unifour Area the special artistic talents of its residents and to generate interest in fine art.
The Foothills Painters is a community of individuals from a wide range of backgrounds, ages, skills and interests who have come together to express themselves through art. We have joined together to explore new ideas, share new techniques, encourage artistic development, share friendships and to broaden our horizons.
We paint, draw, sculpt, throw pottery, make jewelry, design fabric, photograph and much more. Our diversity in art is as different as we are personally unique.
Foothills Painters have held successful exhibitions in Hickory, including the Hickory Museum of Art, Newton, Morganton, Taylorsville and have participated in numerous artistic venues throughout the area.
