Johnson County Center for the Arts is your destination for locally made art and fine craft from the East Tennessee Mountains. More than thirty juried artisans sell their wares through our gallery space. Most days, you'll find at least one of them painting, carving, or quilting. You can sign up for scheduled classes or use the materials in our Maker Space anytime. Volunteers are always ready to help get you started. We serve coffee and pastries, and the Arts Center is the headquarters for Long Journey Home, Johnson County's Heritage Music and Arts Tour.
