The Pitt County Arts

The Pitt County Arts Council at Emerge is the local arts council for Pitt County. The PCAC is a non-profit arts organization dedicated to edu- cate, inspire, and make the arts accessible to the entire community within Greenville & Pitt County and the Eastern North Carolina region. Programs include several gallery spaces with monthly rotating art exhibitions, a sales gallery and gift shop fea- turing NC artists, a Painted Pottery Studio offering walk- ins, and a full community art center with classes for chil- dren and adults in pottery, metalsmithing, photography, painting, drawing and more.


PCAC at Emerge began as a gallery founded by Holly Garriott, Christina Miller and Leah Foushee, 3 ECU students who saw a need for community based arts organizations in Greenville’s downtown area, as well as an arts organization that could serve as a learning lab for ECU students.

Don Edwards, local businessman and arts supporter custom renovated a historic building for Emerge and donated it rent-free for over 2 years. In 2005, Emerge expanded into a full Community Art Center with classes for adults and children in pottery, metals, painting, textiles and photography.
