The Arts Council, Inc.

Serving Stuart and Martin County



Events produced by the Arts Council draw attention to the meaningful role the arts have in our lives:

ArtsFest, an annual event since its inception in 1988, is downtown Stuart's premier arts festival, and features fine art, fine crafts, and two days of live concerts, workshops, food, children's activities, and much more. The festival is located along East Ocean Boulevard.

First Thursday Gallery Nights, launched in October 2006, is the largest cooperative art partnership in Martin County. The event features art galleries from Jensen Beach and Stuart on the first Thursday of every month.

The mARTies Awards is a time to pay tribute to the contribution that philanthropy, volunteerism and artisitc excellence play in our lives and in our communities.
