What to know
The Arkansas Craft Gallery is home to the Arkansas Craft Guild, one of the oldest artist cooperatives in the Nation, since 1962. The four-room gallery is located just east of the square on Main Street in Mountain View. Traditional and contemporary arts & crafts handmade by Arkansas artisans can be purchased. Artists are in the gallery every Friday and Saturday, with special featured artists demonstrating on occasion, announced on Facebook. The Guild promotes three craft shows per year: the Christmas Showcase at the State Fairgrounds in Little Rock, and the Artisans Market on the Square at Bean Fest the end of October and at Folk Festival mid-April, both in Mountain View.
