Mooresville Artist Guild
On November 17, 1966, numbering about 20 the group known as the Mooresville Artist Guild was organized. The Guild continued to increase in number and on March 6, 1978, the Mooresville Town Board voted to allow the Guild to use the town-owned Southern Railway Depot. The Center became a "quasi-municipal service" and has worked since that time to develop the former Depot into a visual arts center for the area. Now named “Mooresville Arts,” the center also became associated with the Iredell Arts Council and is supported in part by the Grassroots Art Program of the North Carolina Arts Council. On May 24, 1982 Mooresville Arts was incorporated in North Carolina as a non-profit corporation whose purpose is to provide art and art appreciation for members and the general public.
In present day, Mooresville Arts continues to thrive as a non-profit organization that is an advocate for the artist and serves as an artistic and cultural resource for the Mooresville and Lake Norman community. Mooresville Arts promotes arts and appreciation of art through gallery shows, classes, workshops and special events. It provides an arts center available as an exhibiting gallery, a gift shop and a place to hold events for the general public. The Center encourages and promotes individual endeavor in the arts and participates in community activities designed to increase public appreciation for the arts.
