Being a patron gets you mention as much as possible in the press and is a great opportunity to use event tickets as business reward for employees, customers and friends.

A patrons' preview party will occur the evening of Friday, October 21st from 5-9pm for patron recognition and purchases. For more information on becoming a patron level supporter please see the information below.

Fall for the Arts has been an ever evolving juried artist show around Lake Gaston since 2008.  Thank you to all who have been involved in making this event great!  The FFTA artist community has praised the unique and open platform offered, allowing each artist and patron the opportunity to learn and grow from one another in our relaxed and inspirational setting. In order to further encourage this evolution, the event organizers have elected to make Fall for the Arts a biennial event.    

Below are some of the features we would like to explore to develop for future FFTA events, but we encourage your input for more ideas that would be of interest to you for this event. Please contact us at  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

- Educational seminars for artists
- Offering artists a retreat setting
- Continue the concept of hosting patrons party with artist auction
- Serving gourmet food that supports the high quality of the art
- Bringing the Lake Gaston community together to support the arts
- Continue to host out of town artists in the homes of lake residents and encourage them to relax and enjoy the beauty and serenity of Lake Gaston.
