The Frank Stick Memorial Art Show, named in honor of Mr. Stick, a local artist and environmentalist, held its opening reception last night. The show is in its 36th year and is a much anticipated event. Though temperatures were cold with a slashing wind, the Ghost Fleet Gallery where the event is held was wall to wall with artists and art lovers. One of the gallery owners, Pat, is seen here in the white shirt, always the gracious hostess making sure everyone is having a good time.
I have a couple of thoughts on art competitions in general. They shouldn't be taken too seriously since it's only one or two opinions that decide these things. But on the other hand, those people that say they don't care about awards, balderdash! It's still nice to win. Thank you Dare County Arts Council.
