The Jaquelin Jenkins Gallery is a home to more than 250 artists, craftsmen and photographers. In addition to the retail gallery, The Center hosts special exhibits of local and nationally known artists.

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.

Please check our website for our calendar of scheduled events.

The Center is overseen by Arts of the Albemarle, a regional non-profit arts council.
