WELCOME TO SaxArt !
SaxArt is a Contemporary Fine Art Gallery that was founded with simple goals- to showcase "local" and "regional" artists, and in the process, highlight Saxapahaw as a positive, growing, creative cultural community. We strive to reach this goal by creating a greater community awareness of the arts and art related events.
Located in the heart of Saxapahaw, in the historic Sellars Building, The SaxArt Gallery is an "unexpected gem". The Gallery is proud to represent over 50 mid-career and emerging artists and craftsmen and has rapidly become a vital part of the Contemporary Fine Art Scene in both the Triangle and Triad Regions of North Carolina!
New shows are mounted each month with a "featured artist" exhibit in the front of the Gallery. A rich diversity of mediums and subject matter are evident in the selection of works exhibited. Artist receptions will be held on the 1st Sunday of each month from 2:00-5:00 PM and always include great food and music!
Make memories at the SaxArt Gallery. Your Saxapahaw wedding, cocktail reception, luncheon, dinner, business meeting or holiday party becomes a unique event within the art of the gallery. Our goal is to make your event memorable and remarkable!
Our largest space is the Elegant Main Gallery. Once the Company Store for the Dixie Yarn Cotton Mill; this space within the "historic" Sellars Building has undergone a spectacular renovation making it Saxapahaw's finest venue for outstanding celebrations. for more intimate gatherings, the Meet Locker includes artwork from the Galleries Collection in a pub-like setting, complete with a European Style courtyard. this room is perfect for luncheons, dinners and smaller meetings. the Main Gallery is also equipped for musical performances featuring our baby grand piano.
