With heavy hearts, we announce that Emerge Gallery and Art Center will be closed through April 30th.

We know this is unfortunate circumstances and we will be in touch with you if you have signed for for a class. We are trying our best to make the safest decision for our art community.

As we are concerned for the health and safety of our community, we know how important art can be to our well being. We will be posting art ideas on our Facebook and Instagram pages to help you make different kinds of art at home. We all know that art has healing powers.

Please, consider donating to our Arts Relief Fund to assist Pitt County Artists and Art Organizations.
