“Great source for Local Art/Theater”

Arts of the Albemarle
Attraction details
Reviewed June 30, 2014

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.

A small town with an energetic art community at its heart has produced a restored and active Arts of the Albemarle from a hundred year old department store. Visit any first Friday of the month to enjoy a Main Street full of happy folks, music, art and wines. The first week of every June brings SPLASH .. Visiting painters, potters, and musicians take over downtown with their creativity and talent.

Arts of the Albemarle is the creative heart of our city. Housed within this beautifully restored building is an abundance of talent. Whether it is the monthly Art Walk featuring various artists, our community theatre group, performers from out of our area, art workshops or performances by the talented students in the School of The Arts Program there is something for everyone to enjoy. The Gallery Gift Shop offers one of a kind hand crafted items. As the owner of The Elizabeth City Bed & Breakfast we alway encourage our guests to include a visit to Arts of The Albemarle when they are in town.

This is an amazing space, full of vibrant art, music, gifts, theater productions! It's a glorious 3 story historic building near the waterfront downtown which has been restored and preserved and repurposed in the best possible way.
