One of the best things about living on the Outer Banks is the amazing art scene, and with the opening of the 37th Annual Frank Stick Memorial Art Show Saturday night, just how dynamic and talented that community is went on full display.
Held at Glenn Eure’s Ghost Fleet Gallery-Glenn and Pat have hosted every year since it began-there were 99 entries this year representing an incredible array of styles. Multi-media, water colors, acrylics, photography, fabrics-a full range of artistic expression that barely scratches the surface of who and what the Outer Banks artists are all about.
Sponsored by the Dare County Arts Council-celebrating their 40th anniversary this year-the opening night reception has become one of the social highlights of the winter season. Nobody seemed to be taking a head count but it there seemed to be somewhere around 150-200 visitors to the Gallery over the two hour reception.
The show will be at Glenn Eure’s through March 20, perfectly timed so that visitors coming to the Outer Banks for Taste of the Beach can stop in and see for themselves how remarkable the local talent is.
