Our shows have a wide variety of offerings. Everything from nationally-known oil painting artists to a month dedicated to children's art. Please see our calendar for coming events.
An important role Mooresville Arts plays in the community is the promotion of art appreciation and education. We take this role seriously by providing excellent educational opportunities to all members of the community.
Out Gift Shop is open and has a wide variety of original pieces for sale. $10 and up makes it easy for you to satisfy everyone on your list of birthdays, anniversarys and other events. We even have a holiday sale - watch for it!

In December 2017 several volunteers got together and spent over 500 hours to renovate the working galleries. It looks great!

Since 1863, the Mooresville Depot has been the cornerstone on which the Town of Mooresville was built. It brought commerce to the region which led to people moving into the area. In 2009 the building was placed on the National Register for Historic Places by the United States Department of Interior.
The Town of Mooresville leased the building to the Mooresville Artist Guild in 1973 who converted part of the building to a Visual Arts Center, thus becoming the cornerstone of art culture for the region.
Over the years the Depot has served Mooresville Arts and the community well, even though more then 2/3 of the building remains without heat and air conditioning.
We have a two-part plan to renovate the gallery and warehouse. First, we want to renovate the warehouse. This will consist of adding insulation, HVAC and safety.
We are working with the Historical Society and Architects familiar with renovating a building of this age. We have many challenges ahead, but look forward to the day we can utilize this wonderful, historic room for public events, chasses and a variety of other uses.
Our team of volunteers are willing to put in the time and energy to see this project through. What we need from you is funding. Please help us keep this building a thriving art center by donating today.
Our growing educational programs, workshops and national, regional and local exhibits reflect growth and interest in the arts and is a reason many people visit our town. We are the only non-profit Visual Arts Center in the surrounding area.
