Open Studios on Last Saturdays

SmARTists open their studios to the public on the last Saturday of every month from 2 pm to 6 pm. A map and directory of artists studios is available at

You can tell which studios are open by the blue yard signs.

Studios are located primarily in the Arts & Cultural District, a short walking distance from downtown Kinston. There are also a couple of studios in downtown.

Our friends at Art105, an artist cooperative studio/gallery space at 105 West Blount Street in downtown (a short walking distance from the District), are usually open on last Saturdays too.

The Kinston Community Council for the Arts is just around the corner from Art105, located at 400 North Queen Street. They are open on Saturdays from 10 am to 2 pm. Make a day of it!
