Artwork at The Aerie

We have partnered with the Community Artists Gallery and Studios in hand-selecting artwork for display at the inn. The gallery is the premier venue in New Bern, North Carolina, for local artists and art in all mediums. CAGS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit cooperative that supports a gallery, community outreach, studio space, and educational programs (especially for under-served populations) and is an all-volunteer enterprise.

All artwork displayed at the inn is available for purchase at the Community Artist Gallery
