Arts Council's Main Gallery hosts professionally-curated art exhibitions featuring work by local and national artists. Located on the main floor of the Milton Rhodes Center, the Main Gallery is a dramatic and welcoming space that seamlessly connects the main entrance with the Community Arts Gift Shop and front desk.
The Main Gallery can accommodate 50 guests seated, or up to 200 guests for a standing-room-only event.
At the center of the gallery is a stunning installation called The ArtisTree which functions as a circular bench for patrons, and adds a sense of warmth and wonder to the space. Brought to life by two local creative enterprises, The ArisTree was designed by architectural firm STITCH Design Shop and constructed onsite by Sunnyside Millwork during the 2019 transformative renovation of the Milton Rhodes Center.
Convenient paid parking is available in the paved lot across the street from the Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts. Event Parking is available for $3, and Daily Parking is available for $5. There are several additional parking garages located within walking distance.
Concessions are available for purchase before performances and during intermission for events in Hanesbrands Theatre, Reynolds Place Theatre, and Mountcastle Forum. Selection includes popcorn, candy, sodas, water, wine, and beer. Concessions are permitted inside theatre venues unless otherwise noted. All concessions proceeds benefit Arts Council of Winston-Salem & Forsyth County.
Arts Council venues are delighted to provide accessible accommodations and services for guests with disabilities. Hanesbrands Theatre offers assistive listening devices upon request. For specific accessibility requests, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
