Dare County Arts Council announces a Call for Entry for 21st Mollie Fearing Memorial Show

The eclectic Mollie Fearing Memorial Art Show will return to Dare County Arts Council for its 21st year on Sunday, May 6.

Dare County Arts Council is partnering with the Outer Banks Forum for the Lively Arts to bring the theme of music to this year’s Mollie Fearing Memorial Art Show.

“The Outer Banks Forum is excited about partnering in this art show for the first time,” said Eddie Cooke, President of the Outer Banks Forum for the Lively Arts. “The Forum will be pleased to select its 2019 Playbill cover from this array of diverse artwork.”

The Outer Banks Forum’s Excellence Award recipient will receive a cash reward and the winner’s work will grace the cover of the 2018-19 Forum Playbill. The Playbill is distributed to 500 individuals and businesses throughout the Outer Banks.

“I am so thrilled to include the art of music in the Mollie Fearing Art Show for 2018,” said owner of Mollie A. Fearing & Associates and Mollie Fearing’s daughter Grizelle Fearing. “Music is an important element in life-defining moments in time that you can relive upon hearing that first note.”

The show is held in memory of Mollie A. Fearing, one of the founders of Dare County Arts Council.

Artists wishing to participate in this year’s exhibition can find a prospectus online at DareArts.org/molliefearingshow and at the arts council Gallery.

The Mollie Fearing Memorial Art Show is open to Dare County Arts Council members and residents of Dare County age 18 and over. All mediums, except video and projection, are welcome.

Sculptor and installation artist Gabrielle Graber will judge the show. She is currently living in North Carolina as a resident artist at Pocosin Arts. Her practice is an ongoing investigation of being a body in the world where layers of experience and interactions collide into material form.

An opening reception for the Art Show will be held at the Dare County Arts Council Gallery in Manteo on Sunday, May 6 from 2 to 4 p.m.

For more information about the 21st Annual Mollie Fearing Memorial Art Show, please visit DareArts.org/molliefearingshow or call (252) 473-5558.

This project was supported by the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.

The Outer Banks Forum for the Lively Arts is a non-profit organization that brings an annual series of seven diverse concerts to the area and provides opportunities for youth to participate in the arts. All of the performances are partially underwritten by community businesses.

Dare County Arts Council is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit arts organization dedicated to encouraging the arts in Dare County through advocacy, enrichment and opportunity.
