Arts in the Gap is dedicated to the creativity and cultural heritage of Appalachia within the Cumberland Gap community at the confluence of Tennessee, Kentucky, and Virginia.


Through workshops, exhibitions, performances, and other studio opportunities, Arts in the Gap invites participants from all walks of life to engage in our region's unique creative and cultural practices firsthand.


By cultivating traditional, contemporary, and emerging artisanship deeply rooted in our region, Arts in the Gap presents a unique opportunity for the past and present to meet the future. We provide an environment in which to share, explore, and respond to creative works of all forms and traditions, inspiring appreciation for the arts in industry, education, and our everyday lives.
