Up Your Arts is For Visual Artists

Special Notice

A Note About COVID-19

2020 has been a difficult year. COVID-19 has dealt unspeakable damage to people all around the world, including right here in Southport. Up Your Arts continues to closely watch the situation and is committed to maintaining ongoing safety precautions to keep everyone safe and healthy. We are committed to continuing to promote the arts in Southport in a safe way during these trying times. We appreciate your cooperation, your patience, and your compassion, and we hope that we can all get back to enjoying the arts live and in person very soon.

Up Your Arts wants to help you showcase your creations

In many ways, it can seem as though creators got the short end of the artistic stick (no, not drumsticks, you guys go here.) Finding a place to display your art can be a challenge. So many places support our performing friends (and we adore them for that!) but it can be difficult finding a home for your latest oil painting, blown glass sculpture, or clay masterpiece. Up Your Arts wants to help take some of the struggles out of that search, and help creative artists find additional support resources like grants and funding to help them continue to pursue their passions.
