ARTworks Vass is a labor of love that’s part Gallery, part Classroom, and part Artists’ Studios.  We long to be a place of Community where Artists and Art Lovers gather for inspiration, creativity, and conversation. 

Home to the Visual Arts Program of the Arts Council of Moore County (ACMC). Each month, ACMC offers a new exhibit in the Feature Galleries, showcasing artwork from local, regional and national artists.

Virtually every medium of art is represented and the Gallery is proud to present a variety of vibrant emerging artists as well as a number of critically acclaimed artists.

Given Memorial Library and Tufts Archives

From its earliest days, the Village of Pinehurst has had a lending library. For nearly seventy years, the library was provided through the benevolence and good will of the Tufts family. The location and number of volumes varied season by season, and in 1963-1964, the library had dwindled to a few shelves, and was located in the Casino building. Then, at the urging of Eric Nelson, Sarah Given Larson was moved to create a lasting treasure in honor and memory of her parents, John L. and Irene Heinz Given. With her endowment, and a gift of land on the Village Green by Richard S. Tufts, the Given Memorial Library was born. Ten years later, the Tufts Archives was created through an endowment from the Tufts Family Foundation and another gift of land, both engineered by Richard S. Tufts. The Pinehurst history museum was added to the library building. Now the Given Memorial Library is decades-old, and is a central and beloved part of the Village, and the Tufts Archives is known throughout the world for the quality and uniqueness of the collection.

The Village of Pinehurst took ownership of the management of the Given Memorial Library and Tufts Archives in April 2022.

The Artists League is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1994 to promote interest in the visual arts by providing art education and a friendly environment in which to work, exhibit and sell members’ artworks.

The gallery hours are Monday through Saturday from 12:00 noon to 3:00 pm. Exhibits are changed monthly.
