Dare County Arts Council reviews
Great place to stop and see local artist art. And a beautiful old building, and they have restrooms.

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.
