Small but very adequate spaces and nice quality art. Free admission and vibrant community feel with the university and town. A great asset to the town and life for the Arts.

I visit the Turchin 3-4 times a year and always enjoy. It is not a stuffy "old people" art museum. The staff are friendly & knowledgeable and the exhibits are always thought-provoking. There is even a relaxing room suitable for families with small children.

The map shows this in Castalia NC .... Imagine my surprise when asking for directions that it is no where near there!!! Unfortunately our trip of +/- and hour, turned into three. Map update needed. If I am wrong about this, please let me know the actual address in Castalia.
