Dare County Arts Council announces call for entries for Frank Stick Memorial Art Show

Dare County Arts Council is now seeking entries for the 43rd Frank Stick Memorial Art Show, which will open on Saturday, January 30, 2021.

“Although things will be a bit different for the 2021 Frank Stick Memorial Art Show, we are really happy that we are still able to host this special exhibit and showcase the work of local and regional artists,” said Dare County Arts Council’s gallery manager Lynne Francis. “We have made some changes to ensure that the show can go on in a safe and responsible way.”

Artists wishing to participate in this year’s exhibition can find the prospectus and sign up for a specific time to drop off their work online at DareArts.org/frankstickshow and at the DCAC Gallery.

Artist and art teacher Robin York will judge the 2021 Frank Stick Memorial Art Show. York taught at Manteo High School for 30 years and now teaches painting, drawing, pottery, batik and art appreciation at the College of The Albemarle. She obtained a BFA in painting and drawing and a masters in art education at East Carolina University. Her work hangs in private homes throughout the United States and Europe and has been displayed in the North Carolina Museum of Art.

“I look forward to judging the Frank Stick Show in January,” said artist Robin York. “The show always spotlights the richly diverse, finely crafted talent that we have throughout Dare County. I’m sure that I will be both challenged and awestruck. It is my pleasure to judge this special exhibit.”

The Frank Stick Memorial Art Show is the longest running visual arts exhibit in Dare County and is held in memory of Frank Stick. His influence on the Outer Banks as a preservationist and artist cemented his lasting legacy as one of the most important figures of the 20th century in the county.

Due to COVID-19, there will not be a formal opening reception at the DCAC Gallery for the 2021 Frank Stick Memorial Art Show.

The show will be open for viewing during normal gallery hours from January 30 through February 27.

Businesses interested in sponsoring the 43rd Frank Stick Memorial Art Show awards should contact Dare County Arts Council’s executive director Chris Sawin at DareArtsInfo@gmail.com.
