About The Toe River Arts Council
TRAC is governed by a bi-county board with offices above the Burnsville Gallery, a gift shop and exhibition space. The Spruce Pine Gallery offers a gift shop and larger exhibition space. Exhibitions are educational, entertaining, of the highest quality, and represent artists and crafts persons in both traditional and contemporary work. Our gift shop participants, rigorously juried once a year, represent the artistic talent from Avery, Mitchell, and Yancey Counties. Our newest space is the Arts Resource Center located above the Spruce Pine Gallery. In the coming year, it will host entrepreneurial workshops for artists, process-driven craft classes, theatre and musical performances and serve as a resource for the multitude of craft-related groups in the two county region.
