About Pocosinarts


In the fall of 1972 Feather Phillips made landfall. It was here among the cypress and juniper lined inlets with its beautiful wildlife that a Pennsylvania girl found a new home in Eastern North Carolina. In June of 1994 Feather and others got together to file articles of incorporation and created the Pocosin Arts Folk school as a private, non-profit, educational center whose mission was to connect culture to the environment through the arts.

Pocosin Arts has operated a teaching studio and gallery on Main Street in Columbia since 1995. Pocosin Arts has a diverse offering of programs, including: public school enrichment; after school children’s programming; weekend workshops; week long workshops; weekly adult and youth classes; artist’s residencies; clubs and guild programming; contract work with schools both private and public, Albemarle Ecological Field Site; and participation in festivals and fairs.
