Outer Banks Forum and Dare County Arts Council Team Up

Gathering at Trio's in Kitty Hawk to celebrate the arts on the Outer Banks.

We had one of those great events tonight that is a wonderful reminder about how special the Outer Banks community is. Two local art organizations teamed up to put on a great show at Trio in Kitty Hawk.

The Outer Banks Forum for the Lively Arts and the Dare County Arts Council (DCAC) cosponsored an exhibit of the visual art of performance, featuring photography and paintings of musicians at their craft.

It’s a small show but worth checking out for anyone visiting the Outer Banks or for visitors. There are some fascinating black and white photographic studies of musicians in performance, some compelling paintings of the story of how music is created, and that just scratches the surface.

The turnout was very strong with artists mingling with board members from the Forum and DCAC.

The Outer Banks Forum has been a part of the Outer Banks for over 30 years, bringing the perfoming arts to local stages. Their next performance will feature the Virginia Symphony on Thursday Apr. 23rd. All performances are at the First Flight High School Auditorium.

The DCAC is celebrating their 40th Anniversary this year. They are the oldest arts organization in Dare County and support artists, writer, musicians and the creative spirit throughout the county.
