The Hickory Museum of Art has a permanent collection of more than 2,000 works, including extensive collections of contemporary American paintings, folk art and contemporary glass sculpture.
Three primary galleries have both visiting exhibitions and exhibitions drawn from our own collections and change every few months. The Local Artist gallery (Gifford Gallery) allows visitors the chance to see excellent works by North Carolina artists. Public programs connected to the exhibitions are held every month. Guided group tours are available by appointment, and school curriculum-based activities are available.
The “Hand’s On” children’s area on the second floor allows children a chance to express their creativity. The museum also hosts art classes for children of all ages and adults.
The museum also hosts children’s birthday parties for a small fee. Several themes are available, and each child creates and takes home an art project.
The HMA Shop has a wide variety of art and art related items available for purchase. Items include jewelry, fine pottery, folk art, handmade paper and much more. Inventory is always changing, and many of the sales benefit local artists.
Memberships are available and include a discount in the HMA Shop, special notices and invitations to events, our quarterly newsletter called ArtView, and free admission to select museums in the Southeastern U.S.
