ACCC is thrilled to present the 31st Annual Art From The Heart this year! And, we are looking forward to the many artists who will be registering their work. We're excited to see what new pieces have been created and to perhaps show what you've been doing while in quarantine the past year!

Several protocols for Covid-19 protection are being planned so we are in compliance with any state or federal requirements and above all to keep the health and safety of participants in mind.

About Art From The Heart  

Art From The Heart (AFTH) is an annual show and sale of original, two- and three-dimensional artwork, including photography, that typically draws over 2,000 gallery visitors during the event, making it one of the largest regional shows in eastern NC. 

AFTH is open to artists 18 years of age or older at all levels of expertise. Artists are NOT required to be a member of the Arts Council of Carteret County to enter only if they live in Craven, Carteret, Onslow or Pamlico counties. Any non-member artist from outside these counties will need to join ACCC in order to participate in AFTH and may join at registration time. Current members of the ACCC may enter regardless of their county or state of residence. Memberships begin at $25/year.
