The Arts Council of Wayne County has received a $3,000 grant from Duke Energy Foundation. It will be used for the Arts Council's year-round exhibition program to provide educational materials, audio tours, artist gallery talks and free tours for individuals and groups.

There are year-round exhibits in two galleries, which feature local and North Carolina artists, said Sarah Merritt, Arts Council director. They are free to the public.
