Arts and Culture

Gatlinburg is the home of the Historic Arts and Crafts Community, taken as the largest organization made up of independent artisans. Established in 1937, the organization continues to put Gatlinburg art in the history with their famous and distinguished work that spans over several art genres. Dubbed as the key figure when it comes to Gatlinburg art, the Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community Trail is the site of hundreds of different works of art.

The eight-mile looping trail along Route 321 features a variety of creations from local Tennessee artist, from woven baskets, pottery, dulcimers, and old-fashioned straw brooms, to Victorian ceramic pitchers, quilts, and delicate jewelry. Lined with little shops and gorgeous galleries boasting of Gatlinburg art, and dotted by small, inviting eating establishments, the trail is no doubt a heaven to bona fide artists and art lovers, as well as frustrated artists and artist at heart. Thousands of original Gatlinburg art pieces make great gifts and stunning home decorations, and shoppers are always in for a unique find. There are also old-fashioned trolleys that can take visitors around the loop, providing a wonderful means to look around and get a measure of all the shapes and colors that make up Gatlinburg art.
