Art Abounds in Our Community
Wetumpka is home to a myriad of galleries, museums and working studios. From the hand-carried snails along our Tulotoma Snail Trail to the murals throughout downtown depicting our storied history, we are home to many artists expressing the unique character of our community in mediums and forms everyone can experience and enjoy. In fact, Marcia Weber Art Objects, one of the region’s premier folk art galleries, is located in downtown and offers more than 1,000 works of art by internationally-known artists.
Public galleries and student-focused studios abound in our community, thanks to talented individuals, as well as the work of art organizations like The Kelly Fitzpatrick Memorial Gallery, Elmore County Art Guild and Dixie Art Colony Foundation.
Beginning May 2021, “The Kelly” has a new location at 124 Company Street, following displacement after the 2019 tornado and a temporary home in the Chamber. This galley woks to engage, inspire and educate artists and the public by promoting regional visual arts through the collection, recognition, documentation and publication of relevant works of American Art.
While you’ll find displays by the Elmore County Art Guild throughout town, the Dixie Art Colony Foundation can be found on Hill Street. Please call ahead due to the Foundation’s limited operating hours.
The Alabama River Region Arts Center on West Tallassee Street is a community learning space committed to encouraging individual expression and appreciation of the visual, performing and cultural arts through quality, affordable programs. Be sure to check with the Center for detailed information regarding its services.
