Art Galleries

By Beth P. Storie | Wednesday, June 22, 2016

Art feeds our soul and expresses the best in our human spirit. It shows us the beauty in nature through carved wood shaped into bowls or other objects, exquisite stones placed into gold and silver or clay and glass fired into practical or pleasing shapes then painted with rich colors. It gives us images that capture light, movement and scenery created through oils, watercolors and the lens and sculptures of the myriad of majestic life forms in our world or the artist’s imagination. Art expresses the whimsical as well as the sacred. Lucky for us on the Outer Banks, we are surrounded by galleries that put all this art, in its many forms, right at our fingertips. These gallery owners, often artists themselves, curate an inventory that appeals to art lovers of all tastes and ages.

About the Author Beth P. Storie
Beth Storie first came to the Outer Banks for the summer of 1976. She fell in love with the area and returned for good three years later. She and her husband published the national guidebook series, The Insiders' Guides, for more than 20 years and now are building OneBoat guides into another national brand. After spending time in many dozens of cities around the country, she absolutely believes that her hometown of Manteo is the best place on earth, especially when her two children, six cats and one dog are there too.
