Frank Stick Memorial Art Show to honor Glenn Eure

The 41st Frank Stick Memorial Art Show, which brings out the best work from local and regional artists, will be dedicated to the late Glenn Eure when it returns to Dare County Arts Council this month.

Known as a pioneer of the arts in Dare County, Eure contributed to Dare County Arts Council’s growth and success. He also eagerly hosted the Frank Stick Memorial Art Show at his Ghost Fleet Gallery in Nags Head for over 30 years.

“Glenn offered DCAC and the artistic community on the Outer Banks unwavering support and inspiration,” said Dare County Arts Council executive director Chris Sawin. “After Glenn passed away this fall, many of our artists, volunteers and members along with our Board of Directors supported the idea to do something special to honor all he has done for all of us. It only seemed fitting to dedicate the 2019 Frank Stick Show to him.”

Artists wishing to participate in the 41st Frank Stick Memorial Art Show can find the prospectus online at DareArts.org/frankstickshow and at the DCAC Gallery.

The Frank Stick Memorial Art Show is open to Dare County Arts Council members and non-members. Works by artists under the age of 18 are subject to DCAC Program Committee approval. Artwork can be dropped off on Tuesday, January 22 or Wednesday, January 23 between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the DCAC Gallery, located at 300 Queen Elizabeth Avenue in Manteo.

Dare County Arts Council encourages artists to bring their most innovative work for the possibility of winning the Eure Best in Show Award.

Author, poet, curator, archivist and gallery owner Pat Eure will judge the show and present the 2019 Eure Best in Show Award.
“Glenn Eure believed in art,” said his wife Pat Eure. “Watching him in the studio over the years and studying the work, I have come to feel that an artist creates from all the worlds he/she carries inside. The expression may be a shout or sometimes just a whisper – but it is a moment of clarity within complexity. Glenn was a serious artist who never took himself too seriously. He looked for the artist in each of us. He believed in people. I think that was why he smiled a lot.”

The opening reception will begin at 6 p.m. on Saturday, January 26 in Dare County Arts Council’s Courtroom Gallery. The reception is free and open to the public and will feature hors d’oeuvres and drinks.

The show is the longest visual arts exhibit in Dare County and is held in memory of Outer Banks preservationist and artist Frank Stick.

The Frank Stick Memorial Art Show will remain on display at the DCAC Gallery through Tuesday, February 26.

Dare County Arts Council is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit arts organization dedicated to supporting the arts in Dare County.
