About The Frank Stick Memorial Art Show
The annual show is held in memory of Outer Banks preservationist and artist Frank Stick, who was instrumental in having miles of the Cape Hatteras Seashore designated as the first National Seashore.
The Frank Stick Memorial Art Show is the longest running visual arts exhibit in Dare County. The exhibit goes on display every January at the DCAC Gallery. In 2017, the show was held at the DCAC Gallery for the first time since its inception 39 years ago.
