Arts of the Albemarle is a regional non-profit arts council located in downtown Elizabeth City at The Center, the renovated historical Lowry-Chesson building. This world class arts facility houses The Jaquelin Jenkins Gallery, home to over 250 artists; The Maguire Theatre, a state of the art performance space; and our School of the Arts.

The Center's Jaquelin Jenkins Gallery is a home to more than 250 artists, craftsmen, and photographers. In addition to the retail gallery, The Center hosts special exhibits of locally and nationally known artists. The Maguire Theatre - original to the historic Lowry-Chesson Building - has been restored as a intimate, state-of-the-art 250-seat performance space. The Maguire hosts local, regional, and national acts. Innovative design of the theatre makes possible a wide range of events from seated performances to cabaret-type events to private receptions.    

Arts of the Albemarle is also a great starting point when enjoying First Friday ArtWalk, which is held the first Friday of each month from 4:00pm - 7:00pm.  This is a fun night of visiting participating studios, stores, and restaurants to meet the featured artists and musicians who will be showcasing their talents.
