Home of the Associated Artists of Southport

The Franklin Square Gallery is in the heart of the art scene in historic Southport, North Carolina, a rewarding and wonderful place to visit. With over one hundred artists displaying their paintings and pottery, you are sure to find the art you are searching for.


The member artists come from throughout southeastern North Carolina, from Wilmington to Pinehurst, and even to Myrtle Beach, bringing with them many different styles and techniques. The Associated Artists of Southport started the gallery in the seventies with only twelve members, in the former Southport school house and town hall. Over the years talented artists from the area discovered the site and made it their home.
