Artists come to East Tennessee for inspiration from the natural surroundings, Appalachian Mountains and sometimes fall in love and decide to stay. Art lovers come to see the painted pictures, photos, and beautiful landscapes on canvas or prints by the artists of Historic Jonesborough and surrounding areas — Johnson City, Kingsport, and Bristol, Tennessee.
Historic Jonesborough appreciates art in so many ways, and showing and selling is at the top of the list. The picturesque downtown area with its landscaping and well preserved historic buildings creates a beautiful setting for great pictures, photos, and canvas paintings.
In addition there are several art sale/exhibits that have recently been added to the Jonesborough calendar. Each event is an opportunity for many different kinds of artists to showcase and sell their work. More information can be found on the jonesboroughtn.org website and by searching Fine Art in the Park and the McKinney Center.
