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.
