About Us

Uptown Art offers a larger variety of supplies and tools to better equip the students of ECU and Pitt as well as our local community of artists. The excitement over our PirateWear and the success of our Pirates has given us an opportunity to re-examine our focus in the art department, as well as to address the current needs of our growing community of artists. Anyone who comes Uptown during the Art Walk readily sees the arts in our city with expanded galleries and businesses open during each event. For the past year, Uptown Art has proudly joined the Art Walk with artists demonstrating various mediums in the display window along with the exhibition of the guest artist’s work. Uptown Art invites you to join us by participating in The Renaissance of Uptown to help further beautify and keep our city center vibrant through our art events.

Thanks to the increasing diversity of ECU’s programs, covering everything from interior design and architecture to the many fine arts and communication programs offered in the School of Art and Design, Uptown Art has the opportunity to expand its variety and offer new tools and supplies. Our selection of supplies will grow to be more inclusive for all concentrations. We have already begun to do so with our metals section, as well as our textiles and ceramics sections. While we continue to broaden our stock selection, we will continue to have all the right supplies at the right price!

To do our part in the continuation of our downtown’s revitalization, we will do everything we can to help the arts continue to thrive. In order to pioneer this Uptown Art movement we have had major renovations done to the upper floor space of U.B.E. where our sales floor is now located.

Influenced by Wassily Kandinsky’s painting Several Circles, the interior design themes communicate a visual cosmic experience while the customer travels through the space. Stop by Uptown Art, and check out which exhibit we are featuring in our gallery. Come gather on our balcony during art socials and pre-game day parties!

Please help us to continue to bring the arts UP by helping us spread the word about the progressive arts in our community!
