Open Gallery: Sa 11am - 3pm
Today, just about two years from the purchase of 919 Broad Street, the New Bern Arts and Wellness Center continues to grow in its reach and evolve in its purpose. The ceramics center has provided dozens of classes and frequent kiln firings reveal the growing potential of the Center’s pottery community. The wellness center offers Yoga, Tai Chi and other specialty workshops and, also, is a choice venue for specialty programs such as Yoga for Cancer Patients thanks to the unique soft-mat flooring. In addition, the Center offers a range of visual arts classes and is growing in the diversity of programs thanks to the talented leadership of its manager, Ms. Cait Nolan. She is particularly excited about new offerings for kids in the summer.
The Center also features art spaces where artists can both work in community and have a venue to display their work. This will be the Center’s primary growth area as it builds its resident artist community. Artists have access to the hospitality area and can make themselves at home with access to wi-fi and meeting space. A new “gallery” brings work into focus for visitors and allows resident artists to sell their work to the public.
The New Bern Arts & Wellness Center has been a labor of love for its founders rewarded by the friendship and support of an amazing and growing group of volunteers and artists: the heart of the Center belongs to their generous and unwavering presence!
