What does AAAC do with Sponsorship Funds?
The AAAC could not function without our generous sponsors. With your funding, we are able to provide the following services to our community:

      

  • The Refinery Creator Space is the space we call our home, located at 207 Coxe Avenue. This building holds 10 individual artist studios and 5 arts organizations under one roof. This collaborative environment also includes two galleries run by the AAAC, a media lab that is free to use for AAAC members, and event space rentals available to the community.
  • Gallery Exhibits are always on view at the AAAC Refinery. The AAAC uses these galleries to not only showcase and sell the work of local artists, but aims to foster talent in local curators.
  • Grants are available for Buncombe County artists and arts organizations through our re-granting program. There are three major grant opportunities the AAAC offers. In 2017, we distributed over $77,000 to artists and art organizations in our county.
  • Arts & Wellness for Veterans is our newest program that serves as an alternative method of healing through art classes and workshops. These sessions provide avenues of expression that go beyond those traditionally offered. Through innovative collaborations with organizations and specially trained artists, we have brought together the creative arts to this unique population in support of their recovery.
