Twyla Duke Administrative Assistant to the Vice President for Advancement 252-398-1233

My favorite part of working for Chowan University is greeting visitors and being the curator for The Wayland L. Jenkins, Jr. Fine Arts Center. Not only do I enjoy learning about the artists of the variety of works in the gallery when researching them, I also enjoy showing the Jenkins collection including the period furniture to the many guests and students who visit the gallery, and educating them about the collection

The Wayland L. Jenkins, Jr. Fine Arts Center

Jenkins Center

Named for the philanthropist who donated his vast collection, The Wayland L. Jenkins, Jr. Fine Arts Center at Chowan University features a permanent collection of original art and early 19th-century furniture. Consisting of almost 90 original works of art and more than seven noteworthy pieces of antique furniture, the new Fine Arts Center represents Mr. Jenkins’ talent as a collector and generosity as a supporter of Christian higher education at Chowan University. There is no other collection quite like this on exhibit in any museum or school in North Carolina. With this kind of collection, the variety in oils, watercolors, acrylics, and others, as well as period furniture, it’s an art gallery that’s a museum.
