Arts of the Albemarle is a wonderful venue for artists in Southern Virginia and Northeastern North Carolina to showcase and sell their items. The Center displays jewelry, paintings, photography, ceramics and other types of art at reasonable prices. In addition, AOA supports an exceptional young theatre troupe, The Center Players. These young people recently participated in a regional festival in Atlanta, Ga. and won honors in their class. The First Friday ArtWalk is an event visitors should try to take in to see local artists at AOA and other local art venues.
