Naomi Studio and Gallery

Nestled in the heart of the Ninth Street Historical District, the Naomi Studio showcases a diverse collection of fine art and collectibles. Theresa Naomi Writz founded the gallery in 2015 as it was her dream to display her work while at the same time promoting other artists and creating interactive community events. The staff is knowledgeable, and the showroom features colorful paintings, woodblock prints, and interesting sculptures just to name a few.

Alizarin Gallery

Located in the center of downtown Durham, the Alizarin Gallery works to support both local and regional artists. Its mission is to provide a multi-use gallery for exhibits and workshops to increase the artists' exposure so they become better known and sell their work. The friendly staff enjoys helping guests build their art collection, and the pieces are made of metal, wood, and more.
