It’s that time of year — join in!

March is Membership Drive month and AOP is extending an invitation to new members and to existing member to renew their memberships. Memberships range from individual, artist, student, family, to various levels of business. The levels are varied enough so that every budget can benefit and take advantage of being a member of AOP. Sponsorships for movies, events, stage plays and so much more are also available to anyone interested. We are in the process of updating memberships, so you may hear from us soon. For additional information, or to become a member, please contact Karen Etheredge at the historic Turnage Theatre by email at k.etheredgeaop@gmail.com, or contact any of the staff at the theatre during business hours: Tuesdays through Thursdays 1-6 p.m.; Fridays, 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.; or through AOP’s website www.artsofthepamlico.org.  Thank you for being a part of the ongoing arts that make our community so engaging, exciting and unique.

It’s one of the longest-operating arts councils in the state at 46 years. AOP is based in its historic Turnage Theatre in downtown Washington. With live theatre, exhibits, film, music, comedy, children’s programming and virtually every artistic medium represented, you are sure to find an art activity to enjoy when you stop by.

All events take place at Turnage Theatre. The theatre is located at 150 W. Main St., in Washington. To learn more about future events, please visit AOP’s website at www.artsofthepamlico.org.
