Our community is home to some inspired artists, and the Arts Council of Wayne County works to provide them with the support they need to thrive.

Supporting Art in Goldsboro

The Arts Council’s building on N John Street features two galleries, one on each floor. These spaces are used to showcase the creations of artists from the county as well as all around North Carolina. Both rooms, the first-floor Borden and Bar Association Gallery and the second-story T.A. Loving Gallery, can also be rented for events like meetings, celebrations, and wedding showers. Instructors also teach classes at the downtown venue, holding lessons on visual arts as well as music.

The Art Market

If you ever want to support regional artists and brighten up your home with some inspired artwork, you’re welcome to browse the collection at the on-site Art Market. The Arts Council hosts a shop filled with artwork created by talented individuals from Goldsboro and beyond, and whether you’re looking for a unique gift or a distinctive piece that speaks to you, the variety and imagination on display are sure to have something that catches your eye.

Studio Artists and Events

The Council also hosts studio artists like Ingrid Quick, whose work with natural materials yields beautiful wreaths, ornaments, and reed baskets, while Karin Thompson’s years sailing the seas have inspired vibrant recollections of nature.  Some artists also lead classes to share their knowledge with guests.  Keep an eye on the Arts Council’s upcoming events page to see what kind of workshops and exhibits might be on the horizon.
