About Us

Since 1976, the Columbus County Arts Council has promoted and increased public awareness, knowledge and appreciation of the arts in our county. For many years, we have served both individuals and organizations in Columbus County by presenting or providing funding for exhibitions, performances, festivals, workshops, and residencies.

The economic development of a community is directly related to its cultural resources. Help make a positive impact on Columbus County's future by building artistic opportunities for our citizens.

The CCAC is working diligently to promote the arts in our county. Our facility is open on a regular basis and we plan to offer a variety of programs including classes, exhibits, performances, as well as, a small sales gallery featuring work by local artists.

Currently, gallery hours are Tuesday, Wednesday, & Thursday 8:30am-1:00pm and by appointment.
