Dare Arts, Chicamacomico Shakes Exhibit Opening Reception
Event Description: 

Opening Reception: Celebrating the 150th Anniversary of the US Life-Saving Service. The Chicamacomico Shakes Exhibit will be on display in the Courtroom Gallery April 5-27, 2024.

To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Chicamacomico Life-Saving Station and the Lifesaving Service on the North Carolina Coast, Dare Arts and the Chicamacomico Historical Association have teamed up to host the second Chicamacomico Shakes Exhibit in April.

Artists are invited to combine their talents with local history by taking a cedar shake from the 1911 Chicamacomico Life-Saving Station and transforming it into a work of art.

Artists who would like to participate in this historical arts project can pick up a shake at Dare Arts in Manteo, The Black Pelican Restaurant in Kitty Hawk, the Chicamacomico Life-Saving Station in Rodanthe, or Buxton Village Books in Buxton. Details about participating in the shake show can be found on the button below. Artists are asked to drop off their finished shake(s) to any of the locations listed above no later than Friday, March 8.

Each shake will be available to purchase at the exhibit for $150, and the proceeds will be split between Dare Arts and the Chicamacomico Historical Association to further their missions’ work in the community.
