The Visit Hickory Metro team encourages visitors and locals to explore the Hickory Metro region carefully and safely. The state of North Carolina has lifted all mass gathering limits at this time but encourages individuals to still practice the three W's - Wear, Wait, Wash. People who are fully vaccinated can do all of the things that they did before the pandemic. Those unvaccinated, should still wear a mask in public indoor settings & public outdoor settings when they cannot maintain social distance.

Full Circle Arts


The goals of Full Circle Arts are to provide a space for visual artists (and eventually literary and performing artists) to promote and develop arts education, to develop the potential and professional ability of individual artists, to provide working shared studio space for members, and to raise the funds to meet these goals. We have a gallery which displays the artwork of our exhibiting members and is occasionally used for other events. There is also a classroom which is open for classes and workshops in various mediums.
