Welcome to Art in Bloom Gallery

View our New Art for Fall 2016.

Click here to view our four-minute film.  Thanks to the 2016 Cucalorus Film Festival and Connect Conference for the chance to participate in the 10×10 Challenge.  Art in Bloom Gallery was paired with filmmaker and visual artist, Johnny Bahr III on Tuesday, Nov 8th, and we had four days to make our film.  The film debuted on Sunday, Nov 13th!  Thanks to the artists, musicians, virtual reality team, and others who contributed to the film.

Don’t miss our 2nd Annual Art Raffle to benefit Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard, an emergency food pantry.  The raffle runs through Dec 10, 2016.  You do not have to be present at the drawing on Friday, Dec 10th, at 6 pm to win one of the original, fine art prizes.


Established in October 2015, Art in Bloom Gallery is a crossroad for creativity and other connections that happen when people explore art and exchange ideas.  The art gallery is both global and local by providing virtual space via technology as well as physical space in a renovated 19th century horse stable in downtown Wilmington, North Carolina in the United States.

The gallery presents original paintings, drawings, sculpture, blown glass, photography, mobiles, jewelry, and ceramics with an emphasis on national and international artists.  See the “Artists” area of this website to learn more about our featured artists, Janette K. Hopper, Charles KernanElizabeth Darrow, Debra Bucci, Traudi ThorntonHelen Lewis, Susan Francy, and other artists contributing to Art in Bloom Gallery.

A marble sculpture, “Wind”, by Wendy Zhang and Junhua Cheng is currently exhibited in the 500 square foot courtyard at the back of the building as part of the Pedestrian Art Program organized by the Arts Council of Wilmington and New Hanover County.  Sculptor, Dumay Gorham, created the courtyard gate and is showing a metal sculpture, “Mr. Fox” in the courtyard.  Herb Bailey of Urban Building Corporation built a brick fence and a bench incorporating 18th century ballast stones found in the dirt under the floor boards during the renovation of the building.
