They have completely updated their gallery including a gift shop so that members may display and/or sell their original works, in turn creates a unique marketing opportunity for them to reach local, regional and national audiences.
The Tullahoma Fine Arts Center strives to increase public experience, understanding, appreciation and awareness of (as well as access to) the arts and humanities, especially in the under-served, rural and disenfranchised. The Tullahoma Fine Arts Center seeks to strengthen their existing regional art museum and lending library by encouraging donations of books, works of art and the endowment of funds to secure further permanent collections of both. In 2020, they increased the creativeness of the four exhibit halls; which now collaborate art, education, history and technology to further the experience of patrons.

They are actively exploring ways to assist area school systems with their arts and humanities curricula, providing both extracurricular and co-curricular opportunities for gifted and talented students as well as for the academically and economically disadvantaged. The Tullahoma Fine Arts Center is also one of very few organizations that have the opportunity to host the American Water Color Society which is scheduled for February 2021.
