Welcome to our vibrant arts community. Winchester is rich with visual, performing and literary artisans. We are home town to country music singing star Patsy Cline, jazz musician John Kirby, and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Willa Cather. We are steeped in history, too. George Washington surveyed the land here early in his career. Later, Winchester changed hands 72 times during the American Civil War.

Today, contemporary visual artists are creating new work, in studios to Plein air groups.  Music, theater and dance performances are abundant as well as the many historic sites and museums. It is never a question of, “Is there anything artsy to do?” but rather, “Which event am I going to attend?” Thank you for your interest in our local artisans and arts organizations. Support local art!
