Home of the Western North Carolina Sculpture Center

The WNC Sculpture Center will be housed in the roughly 10,000 sq. ft. gymnasium located on the Patterson School Foundation grounds in Happy Valley, N.C. The generous 30 ft ceilings will enable sculptors to work large and place completed work in an expansive landscape or trail setting. 

We have met our roof replacement fundraising goal and are eager to continue to roll out our ambitious educational programmatic schedule. The sculptural processes that are offered at the WNC Sculpture Center include, Metal Fabrication, Woodworking, Iron Foundry, Blacksmithing and Woodworking. The building will grow to hold an interior gallery space and a large community sculpture studio for workshops and classes.
