Show us "Ocracoke Through Your Eyes" for the 4th annual OPS Art Show.

The 4th Annual "Ocracoke Through Your Eyes" show at the Ocracoke Preservation Society will feature small works by local artists – maybe you!

If you took home one of the 100 little 6 x 8 canvasses, keep working! If you haven't gotten a canvas yet, don't miss your chance! Stop by the Museum, pick up a canvas, and be a part of the show! OPS needs the canvasses back by January 10, 2017.

Amy Howard, OPS Administrator and the organizer of the art show, hopes that professional artists, dabblers, crafters, wanna-bes, and even people who don't think they're artists will be willing to participate.

The artists are asked to show Ocracoke as they see it – the beach, the village, the people, any small part that they choose. Participants can draw, paint, glue, sew, staple, or otherwise add artistic embellishments to the small ready-to-hang canvasses. 

A wine-and-cheese reception and art opening is planned for Saturday, January 28th, from 5 – 7pm at the Museum. The artwork will be available through a silent auction during the reception. Amy will post photos of the canvases on the OPS Facebook page. You can see a selection there and even place your bid online! 

Last year, OPS received a wonderful collection of collages, paintings, and photographs to auction at the event. Children and adults, residents and visitors, professional artisans and beginners were all represented among the little works of art, which raised over $6000 for the non-profit.

The four pieces shown here are some of the many that have already been returned to OPS.
