The Turchin Center for the Visual Arts fulfills Appalachian State University's long-held mission of providing a home for world-class visual arts programming. The center is the largest facility of its kind in western North Carolina, eastern Tennessee and southwestern Virginia, and is named for university benefactors Robert and Lillian Turchin. Featuring two wings of exhibition and support space and the Arnold P. Rosen Family Education Wing, the center is located on King Street in the heart of downtown Boone, North Carolina.

The Turchin Center's exhibitions focus on a blend of new and historically important artwork and feature works of nationally and internationally renowned artists, as well as many of the finest artists of the region. However, the Turchin Center is more than a facility devoted solely to the viewing of art. With its multi-faceted programs the center is a dynamic, living, breathing presence in the Appalachian community, creating opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds to experience the power and excitement of the visual arts.

The Turchin Center is a department of Appalachian State University and is housed in the Office of University Communications and Cultural Affairs. The university has a long history of recognizing the importance of and supporting the arts, but we also depend on community support—through participation, memberships, and donations. To provide increased accessibility for the Appalachian community, the center is free and open to the public.

Burlington

Burlington, North Carolina - NC27215
We’re a private gallery exhibiting fine arts and crafts by a select group of painters, print makers, basket weavers, potters, photographers, jewelers, mixed media, furniture makers and metal artists. We’re not a loft gallery located down some obscure alley in Soho. You’d think our saying “we’re located at 717 Chapel Hill Road in Burlington, North Carolina” would be enough. It’s not – especially if you’re unfamilar with Chapel Hill Road. Here’s an example: our building number is odd (717), yet it’s on the side of the street with all even numbers!

The exhibitions program at the Center for Documentary Studies (CDS) presents images, documents, sound, and written experiences in four galleries, bringing to light telling details and resonant moments in everyday life that might otherwise go unnoticed. CDS exhibitions connect people to those moments, and to a larger story. Serving as a community forum for documentary work, the galleries make the documentary arts accessible to a general audience and present experiences that inform, heighten our historical and cultural awareness, create discourse, foster understanding, and confront traditional views of “others.”

The Juanita Kreps Gallery, established in 1994 and located on the first floor of our renovated turn-of-the-century house, hosts three to four exhibitions annually. The changing exhibits reflect the work of documentary artists who have spent significant periods of time observing and recording diverse cultures in the United States and the world. Recent exhibitions have included Full Color Depression: First Kodachromes from America’s Heartland, color photographs taken by the Library of Congress’s Farm Security Administration (FSA) team; a video installation by filmmaker Laura Poitras, O’ Say Can You See, a stirring meditation on loss and revenge in the aftermath of 9/11; and Unsung Heroes, William Earle Williams’s powerful black-and-white photographs of places where black soldiers trained, fought, and lost their lives in the Civil War. The Juanita Kreps Gallery is committed to introducing new documentary work to audiences as well as supporting the work of established artists.

The Lyndhurst Gallery, established in 2001, is used both to expand the space of the Kreps Gallery and to present smaller exhibits in conversation with those in the Kreps. Exhibitions have included Reciprocity, an exhibition of Cedric Chatterly’s handmade large-format cameras; Disfarmer: Photographs from the Studio of Mike Disfarmer, Heber Springs, Arkansas 1939-1946; and Walker Evans at 100, digital translations of some of Evans’s best-known works in celebration of the 100th anniversary of his birth.??

The Porch Gallery, established in 1998, is an intimate viewing space with natural light located on the first floor of CDS's Bridges Building. Originally used for work growing out of CDS programs, now a much wider range of work is presented there. Recent exhibitions include Sparkle & Twang: An American Musical Odyssey, with photographs by Marty Stuart, and work by winners of the 2011 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards.

The University Gallery—located on the ground floor of the Bridges Building, in close proximity to the CDS auditorium—was established in 2004 as a dedicated space for presenting the work of Documentary Studies students and faculty, and other documentarians associated with Duke University. Exhibitions presented in this gallery have included selected prints from There Is No Eye, photographs by John Cohen, the Lehman Brady Joint Chair Professor in Documentary Studies and American Studies at Duke and UNC–Chapel Hill in Spring 2004; Scenes of Secrecy: Visual Studies on Suspicion, Intelligence, and Security, including work by Trevor Paglen and William Noland; and Mr. Green’s Barbershop, a photo-essay by Jeremy M. Lange.

The Upstairs Artspace is a nonprofit contemporary art gallery in downtown Tryon, North Carolina. We exhibit two and three-dimensional art and craft by leading artists of the Southeast, and particularly, the Carolinas. We have a long standing reputation for art that is sometimes experimental, often avant-garde and always collectible. Our artists are usually established in their careers, but we also welcome the emerging artist whose work is impressive for being fresh, innovative and challenging.

The "Upstairs" was founded in 1978 in the upstairs bedroom of a local artist. Today we occupy a handsomely renovated building with over 3000 square feet of exhibition space in three separate galleries. The exhibitions change every two months and are typically developed around a theme. The exhibits are curated by experienced Board members and we have a strong schedule of programs designed to educate children and adults through tours, lectures, workshops, demonstrations, films and classes in local schools.
