About the Arts Council
The Pike Road Arts Council is one of several volunteer-led committees created through the ENHANCE initiative. The Arts Council engages citizens of the Town of Pike Road who have unique gifts in the fine arts and encourages the utilization of those gifts to bring a greater overall appreciation of the arts to the community. The Arts Council organizes and presents an assortment of arts-related events throughout the year, engaging local artists of all disciplines, from traditional painters to storytellers, crafters, and beyond. If you are interested in contributing to the Arts Council, please contact Arts Council Coordinator Patty Payne by emailing email@example.com.
A Home for the Arts: The Water House Gallery
As the Town of Pike Road has grown, so have the offerings of the Arts Council and all ENHANCE committees. We are excited to announce the opening of a new home for the arts in the Town of Pike Road: The Pike Road Arts Center, home to the Water House Gallery, located at 944 Wallahatchie Rd, under the water tower. We look forward to the new opportunities this facility presents, including art classes, artists in residence, and more.
