Island Art Shows 2015

Shows host over 20 LOCAL Outer Banks Artists and their wares. Each Island Art Show is a Benefit for a different Local Cause: from the OBX SPCA to the Rodanthe-Waves-Salvo Civic Association and more. Admission to these shows is FREE — we ask attendees to simply support our local artisans & crafters. Attendees can find everything from fine local art and prints to woodworks, photography, upcycled art, collage, handmade hula hoops, handmade soaps and body products plus more. Live local music and lunch will be available at each Island Art Show as well as Raffle tickets for one lucky winner to win a basket full of local arts and crafts donated by our participants. There will be event pages posted on their Facebook page … please feel free to LIKE their page and “join” the events to stay updated.
