44. Dare County Arts Council

Dare County Arts Council has partnered with the Refuge and the Coastal Wildlife Refuge Society in sponsoring the Wildlife/Wildlands of Eastern North Carolina Art Expos, which are featured year-round at the National Wildlife Refuges Visitor Center on Roanoke Island. Dare County Arts Council is a 501(c)(3) non profit arts organization dedicated to encouraging the arts in Dare County through advocacy, enrichment, and opportunity. Donations are more than just monetary. We are a volunteer-driven group who understand that time and materials are equally as important as monetary donations. Located on the first floor of the historic Dare County Courthouse in downtown Manteo, Dare County Arts Council operates a gallery for emerging and established artists, providing a constantly rotating exhibit of local art. We feature paintings, pottery, works in printmaking, jewelry, wood design, fiber art, and glass, as well as a fine selection of prints. We also host the Art-O-Mat, a vending machine designed to dispense only original works of art! Each month features a new exhibit in "The Vault" - an amazing room unto itself - and we always host a First Friday opening reception. Currently, the gallery is open Monday through Friday, 10am - 6pm, and on Saturday from 12pm - 4pm. We are closed on Sunday.
