Visit the Ashe Arts Center

The Ashe Arts Center, located in downtown West Jefferson’s Arts District, is home to the Arts Council’s offices. The Ashe Arts Center houses The Gallery, a year-round exhibition space that showcases works of art by local and regional artists. The Gallery Shop features locally produced art and crafts. The restored stone building continues the legacy created in 1938 when it was built by the Works Progress Administration as a gathering place for the community.
