Nice art gallery in downtown Manteo. Large variety of work shown and prices reasonable. Very interesting and unusual needlework.

This could be the best coastal arts council gallery shop that I've been to on the east coast. They have a great selection of local artists represented. The exterior courtyard is getting a modern, beautiful face-lift. I can't wait to see it lit up at night!
Wonderful gallery. Perfect stop on our visit to the area.
Love this Gallery, you must experience the Art-o-mat.
We were looking for something by local outer banks artists and found it here. They had a wonderful large selection, and 2 exhibitions going on. We went back several times and we bought 3 paintings by 3 different artists: Elaine Simoneau, Carol Blaha, and Rob Snyder,
We visited last week when they were barely back in their home after the flooding from Hurricane Irene. We came upon several terrific paintings and had some trouble choosing one to purchase. Finally we chose a painting by Joy Bressette. Some of the best art in the area!
