About
The Franklin Square Gallery is in the heart of the art scene in historic Southport, North Carolina, a rewarding and wonderful place to visit. With over one hundred artists displaying their paintings and pottery, you are sure to find the art you are searching for. WE’RE LOCAL. The member artists come from throughout southeastern North Carolina, from Wilmington to Pinehurst, and even to Myrtle Beach, bringing with them many different styles and techniques. The Associated Artists of Southport started the gallery in the seventies with only twelve members, in the former Southport school house and town hall. Over the years talented artists from the area discovered the site and made it their home. WE’RE A SHOWCASE FOR TALENT. Artists with diverse backgrounds and a wide range of styles have their work on display. There are paintings in oil, acrylic, and watercolor depicting local scenes or European villages. The 2-D art is also available in prints, notecards, and miniatures.

Nice Gallery

Stopped here and enjoyed the gallery. This has a great selection of local artists, nicely displayed in a bright, light filled space. Great historical building, well equipped to show wonderful crafts. Maybe too much pottery for my taste. Worth a visit when wandering through town.

A Hidden Gem
Apr 2019 • Solo
This lovely gallery is nestled in the serene Franklin Park in downtown Southport. The gallery features a wide variety of items from local artists. I especially enjoyed the pottery which ranged from practical to whimsical. During your visit be sure to walk around peaceful Franlkin Park. As a special treat, visit in early April when the azaleas are in bloom. Spectacular!

This art gallery was a welcome stop during our hot vacation. The artwork is lovely and depicts much of the local area by varying artists. The prices were not bad either.

Bowls, deviled egg plates, notecards, paintings, figurines-quite a variety of approaches to art. Nice volunteers staffing the desk. Cute turtle sculpture for $12 to gorgeous abstract acrylic art for several hundred. We spent 30 or 45 minutes here. Neat place.

Enjoyed my visit

Friendly staff and eclectic collection (all for sale) made this a pleasant stop during my recent trip to Southport. I purchased a small print but also enjoyed the larger original paintings, the pottery and jewelry on display.

Paintings and pottery by local artists
Dec 2017 • Friends
This gallery is located in an historic building in downtown Southport behind the park. There are rooms full of good artwork, including watercolors, oils, acrylics, mixed media, as well as pottery by all local artists at fanatically cheap prices.
Definitely worth a visit. On the first Friday of each month there is a reception with free wine and food. A wonderful added attraction.

Local Artist abound

It is my contention that the abundance of natural beauty and the unusual light inspires and encourages the creative spirit in Southport. The Gallery features the very best of all this local talent. Browse or pick up an authentic souvenir hand made by one of our local artists.
