Here’s a little #timelapsetuesday for you. Rolling back to my first day in the studio with @waveactionmedia . These videos are so fun! I do believe it’s time to make more. 💙💜💙 @tcpottery has finally returned home from her claycation and she brought her soda fired pots with her. Check our story for a teeny preview. We’ll be snapping pics today in preparation for our upcoming @Etsy updates. I can’t wait to get all those toasty soda pots out there! 💙💜💙 My week is full with the less-fun parts of my business and I’m struggling to trudge through it. How do you motivate yourself when the work ahead isn’t your favorite but must get done? 😅 💙💜💙 Wave ring by @deniseturnerjewelry 🌊🌊🌊
CELEBRATE OUTER BANKS ART! 🙂 help us kick off a great season at our Island ART SHOW! ~March 30, 2018... "join" the event to stay updated ~ we'll see you there <3
Call to Artists! The Chicamacomico Historical Association (CHA) and Dare County Arts Council (DCAC) will co-host an art exhibit at the DCAC Gallery in Manteo in August 2018 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the famous 1918 Mirlo rescue. Outer Banks artists are encouraged to participate in this historic exhibit.
As part of its efforts to restore the Chicamacomico Lifesaving Station, CHA has carefully replaced and preserved older cedar shakes from the station in recent years. Artists are now invited to use the shakes from the station and transform them into works of art.
The painted shakes will be part of a 100-piece art exhibit that will debut on First Friday Aug. 3, 2018. Additionally, DCAC and CHA will host a special reception for artists and buyers on the evening of Mon. Aug. 13 to celebrate the Mirlo anniversary.
Artists can pick up shakes to paint at either Dare County Arts Council in Manteo or the Chicamacomico Life Saving Station in Rodanthe.
For more details or to find out how to acquire the shakes, contact the Chicamacomico Lifesaving Station at (252) 987-1552 or Dare County Arts Council at (252) 473-5558. For more information about the project, visit www.darearts.org/chicamacomicoshakeshow.
