ADA Accessibility Notes

Etowah Arts Commission is ADA and wheelchair accessible from the street and features no steps. There are 6 upholstered arm-chairs for visitors to use. However, our building is quite old and the interior floor is uneven. Those without a good sense of balance should be aware of this. If you have any concerns, call 423-263-7608 or email

Public Art Gallery is open FREE to the public and features a different local art exhibit every two months. Art classes, workshops, and clubs are offered as well. The Gallery is also a quiet place to rest during your journey and access our free Wireless Internet hotspot.

Each year EAC sponsors the Cousin Jake Memorial Bluegrass Festival the second Saturday in March to honor local "Cousin Jake" Tullock and his bluegrass legacy as bassist for Flatts & Scruggs.

EAC is also responsible for the area's most important educational event: the Young Authors' Conference. Every first Saturday in May students K-8 gather to share their self-written stories with each other and meet professional children's authors.

Founded in 1977, the Etowah Arts Commission exists to promote and sponsor artistic activities for the Etowah community. The EAC is based out of a converted historic drugstore next door to the restored Gem Theater.
