Our gallery features original works of art in painting, photography, jewelry, fiber, metals, pottery and printmaking. Additionally, we offer prints, cards and collectibles.

DCAC is also home to the Art-O-Mat, a re-purposed cigarette machine now designed to dispense tiny, original works of art. Be sure to check it out when visiting.

  • 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!
  • Great place to see works of local artists and get unique gifts. Also has rotating feature artists and shows.
