About Us

The Chowan Arts Council began operation in Edenton on September 21, 1976. We have been located at 504 South Broad Street since November of 2010. This has proved to be an excellent location for locals and tourist alike. “Your Community Arts Center” is just that — a community place where one can enjoy art and good fellowship.

Here, you will find beautiful wall art for sale as well as functional art in the form of pottery, jewelry, wooden boxes, bread boards, and furniture. Our gift shop features locally knit items such as scarves and children’s sweaters.

The Chowan Arts Council is a member-supported, non-profit organization whose mission is to sponsor, encourage, and create opportunities for the participation in — and appreciation of — the visual, literary, and performing arts in Chowan County. Your Community Arts Center provides a forum for display and performance of art, encourages local artistic expression, and fosters community participation through the arts.

And “three cheers” for our volunteers, for it is through their efforts that we are able to be open seven days a week!

We encourage you to visit the gallery often. We hang fresh art pieces almost every week. Please feel free to speak with Holly or the board members if you have suggestions or questions about CAC.

Thank you for your continued support.
