Events we promote

Regular art events in Mount Holly

The Art of Mount Holly

The Art of Mount Holly is an art and business crawl through the community with each local business representing the art of what they do (e.g. The Art of Coffee, The Art of Yoga, The Art of Fashion). Art venues such as Awaken Gallery, The Studios @ 107 West, Arts on the Greenway and Create-In-Us Studios regularly participate and offer open gallery/studio tours, art demonstrations and art for sale. At least once per year, we also install local artist booths in the local businesses with art for sale and additional demonstrations.

Plein Air Paint-Out

The Plein Air Paint-Out started in 2019 and is held every year in September. This event is supported by grant funds and includes professional, amatuer, and middle and high school student artists. The Wet Paint sale is held at the end of a 3-day paint out and open to the public for purchase of the works.

Lantern Parade

Awaken Gallery hosts the Mount Holly Lantern Parade every year in late October in collaboration with the Mount Holly Community Development Foundation and the City of Mount Holly. This event started in 2017 and is open to the public as both participants and patrons. For more information, please see the Awaken Gallery website.
