In NC you might try Black Mountain. If location is not an issue you could also try Key West FL, Keller, TX- arthousekeller.com or Sante Fe NM.

If your search is outside North Carolina....go West young woman!

I would hit the Monterey Peninsula.....Pacific Grove and Carmel are great places that support their own. Another is Mendocino. All are located on the California Coast.

As an agent in North Carolina, I think the best place for local artist is Chapel Hill. It is the home of the University of Chapel Hill and has a large population of artist in residence. Their are performing artist as well as traditional artist and many arts and crafts fairs and events for artist to showcase their work. Also the university has a fine arts department where opportunities exist.

If you are willing to come to California, Mill Valley (more expensive) and Novato (least expensive) in Marin are great places for local artists, both visual and performing arts.

A GREAT place to live and also just north of San Francisco; with lots of colleges and universities around the Bay Area - Think about the possibilities! Well worth it!

If you are looking in North Carolina, Ken is correct in suggesting Asheville. Just acroos the border in Tennessee, Gatlinburg also has a large arts and crafts community

Cambria, California is a very nice place for artists. Also if you like glass blowing, nearby Harmony, California has a great glass studio.

North Davidson or NoDa is the arts district of Charlotte. It features galleries, coffee houses, a dog bar, and a lot of creative housing for arts. There's even talk of subsidized housing for artists to help the neighborhood grow.

There are many places in Hawaii (on all the islands) that support local artists : Honolulu, Kailua, Haleiwa among those on Oahu. For Maui - Lahaina, Haiku, Paia, Makawao, etc.. Kauai - Kapaa, Hanapepe, Hanalei, etc. This is not an all-inclusive list, pretty much every community supports the local artists, especially to the extent that their art is reflective of Hawaii and the Hawaiian culture .

I think it really all depends on what type of art you practice Emily.. Music, theatrics, painting, pottery.. whatever the case may be. Most towns usually have some sort of yearly "Art & Wine" Festival, and those are always a great way to get in front of your local community.

Chatham County! We just had the 14th annual Chatham Art Guild Studio. I wrote about on my blog. See the link below. It was a two weekend juried studio tour with 52 artists showing their work and studios. It's a wonderful art community with great support for artists.

Greenport, Long Island. Hey, it does have a lot of artists and galleries, and seeing as you're from NC, I'd love to start a reverse migration trend! Most of my sellers move down THERE!
