Flood Mission

The Flood Gallery is dedicated to presenting the highest quality visual arts and educational programming for people in the Southern US area, and particularly for the residents of Western North Carolina, a uniquely diverse ethnic, cultural and international community. The Flood Gallery Fine Art Center fulfills its mission by designing and providing art exhibitions, public events, and educational experiences that promote the appreciation and enjoyment of art, support the creative efforts of artists, and enhance the quality of life through interpreting, collecting, and exhibiting art, architecture, dance, film, and design. The Flood Gallery presents artistic and educational programs and exhibitions that directly relate to the contemporary life of its constituents while maintaining the highest standards of professional, intellectual, and ethical responsibility. .

Flood Gallery Fine Art Center programming is made possible through the generous support of the Dan Lucas Memorial Fund of the Community Foundation of Western North Carolina.
