Emerge Gallery & Art Center, Home of the Pitt County Arts Council, announces its annual “Rock the Bus” exhibition, showcasing Visual Art Teachers and celebrating all Arts Educators of the Pitt County School system. Each PCS Visual Arts Teacher can enter artwork into the exhibition to showcase the amazing talent and originality that our Arts Educators have. The exhibition dates are May 6-26, 2022. The opening reception for “Rock the Bus” will be Friday, May 6 from 5:00pm-8:00pm as part of Uptown Greenville’s First Friday ArtWalk.
On Friday, May 6th, Emerge Gallery & Art Center will launch the Pitt County Schools Arts Educators Fund. Proceeds from the Youth Arts Festival and private donations will help supplement arts teachers’ material and supply budgets. The goal is to raise $20,000 for next year’s school year. If you or your business is interested in donating, you can do so at www.emergegallery.com/support/donate and be part of this incredible program.
The First Friday ArtWalk is a time when galleries in Uptown open their doors to showcase new exhibits, often corresponding with free opening receptions. But it’s not just art, many of Uptown’s eclectic mix of restaurateurs and shops will be open to show their support for the arts too. For more information, please visit https://uptowngreenville.com. Emerge Gallery is located at 404 Evans Street in Uptown Greenville. The show is free and open to the public during our open hours.
