The Arts

Artists have long flocked to the Upper East Side of Texas as the tranquility and beauty of the region gives them plenty of creative room. They are cheered on by groups and organizations like the Edom Craft Community, Pine Mills Pottery, Tyler Museum of Art, Longview Museum of Art, Ballet Tyler, Young Audiences of Northeast Texas, Ben Wheeler Arts & Historic Foundation, Gallery 211 in Athens, and Winnsboro Center for the Arts to name a few that showcase hundreds of talented artists in galleries and festivals throughout the year. Outstanding theaters and ensembles show up with top-notch entertainment in small towns and our larger communities alike. Concerts and listening rooms present the enormous talents of our musicians and singer-songwriters and a growing number of filmmakers and authors keep us amazed and entertained as well.
