Enjoy our local art! Home to more than 250 artists, craftsmen, photographers, and everyone in-between, Arts of the Albemarle is the center of Elizabeth City's thriving art community. Stop by to explore our retail gallery and our rotating exhibits of locally and nationally known artists. Admission is free!

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, the Maguire Theatre, and our School of the Arts. In addition to frequent performances and shows, free monthly events include musical performances and Elizabeth City's First Friday ArtWalk. See you there!

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.
