Marc Montocchio Gallery & Studio

Marc Montocchio Gallery & Studio

712 Arendell Street, Morehead City, NC | (252) 515-0886

In June 2015, the Marc Montocchio Gallery & Studio opened at 712 Arendell Street in downtown Morehead City, North Carolina. Marc personally oversaw the renovation of this historic location which first opened as a movie theater in 1928..

When Marc designed the space, function was as important as form because it doubles as a working photographic studio. The one-of-a-kind lighting truss that hangs from the ceiling was built by local craftsman Tim Daly of Carolina Customer Towers. Floor-to-ceiling glass panels separate the gallery from the Marc Montocchio Production Suite, where Marc and his crew can be seen working on their current projects.

Visitors are welcome to browse the museum-like space, guided by either Marc himself (if he’s in town!), or a complimentary, printed self-guide. The self-guide provides information on each image on display, the location it was shot, and pricing for Marc’s work. As one recent customer said, “Visiting Marc’s gallery is like walking through a high-definition aquarium. It’s more of an experience than a store.”

However, the gallery is a great place to shop! Whether you’re looking for the perfect piece of art to complete a redecorating project, or you’d like to take home a memento of your visit to the Crystal Coast, Marc’s gallery has something for everyone.  Prices start at $15, and each print is personally signed by Marc.
