Dare County Arts Council invites artists to contribute art and artifacts to a special July exhibit titled Water Water Everywhere.
Curated by artist Carol Willett, the goal of Water Water Everywhere is to explore the role water plays in sustaining life on the Outer Banks and reflecting that in as many different ways as possible.
“None of us can escape the influence that water has on our lives here on the Outer Banks,” said Carol Willett. “Water sustains us physically, economically and spiritually. It is a source of recreation, a key to our food industry, an environmental factor that influences our weather and a source of artistic inspiration. As a sculptor, the driftwood and materials I collect after each tide become part of the art that I create. I draw inspiration from the interaction of the sea and this ribbon of sand we call home.”
All forms of media including visual, literary and performing arts are welcome, and the show is open to Dare County Arts Council members and non-members. Works submitted to this exhibit should be no larger than 12x12 inches. Artwork can be dropped off on Tuesday, July 9 or Wednesday, July 10.
Artists wishing to participate in the exhibition can find a prospectus online here and at the DCAC Gallery.
“We’d like to create a multisensory experience that delights people and leaves them wanting more, and we would be thrilled to include your artistic take on what water means to you,” adds Willett.
This water inspired art exhibit will debut on Friday, July 12 at 6pm with a special opening reception. The reception is free and open to the public and will also feature hors d’oeuvres and libations.
Proceeds from exhibit sales will benefit art programs throughout the Outer Banks community.
The show will remain on display at Dare County Arts Council through August 12.
