New Bern Riverfront Convention Center, Sat., Sept. 29 at 7 p.m.
$30 for members of the Craven Arts Council; $35 for non-members.

On Saturday evening during the Craven Arts Festival, ticketed guests will be treated to a variety of activities designed to stimulate the senses: delectable delights from The Chelsea; a wine tasting offered by Fraser’s Wine and Cheese Shoppe; explorations of the healing capacities of art; a stage of entertainment; raffle; and the opportunity to view fine art and to meet dozens of artists!

The Bernie Awards will recognize outstanding contributions to the arts environment of Craven County. An artistic environment thrives with the combination of excellence in art education, artistic endeavors, and support by those who appreciate the role of art in a vibrant community. This is our chance to recognize these heroes.

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet dozens of artists and authors while browsing fine art displays and purchasing unique gifts, artwork, photography, jewelry art sculptural creations, and local authors’ published works. See first-hand the works by:
