The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Outer Banks (UUCOB) has announced the opening of a new art show featuring the work of Victoria Byers, longtime former owner/operator, along with her husband, of Stop N Shop in Kill Devil Hills. Since selling the store in 2012, she has devoted more time to her watercolor painting and has developed a beautiful, fluid style to her painting of natural subjects.  Each piece is set in an antique frame that fits the subject.

Byers has studied with some of the Outer Banks’ most talented artists and taken workshops with prominent visiting artists. Her work has won awards in local art shows. She is inspired by her grandmother, who was a watercolorist and art teacher and her love of nature and environmental work that she does.

There will be an opening reception for Victoria’s work on Sunday, October 3 at 11:45 a.m. at the UUCOB Meeting House on Kitty Hawk Road at Herbert Petty Road. Refreshments will be served and Byers will give a talk about her art promptly at 11:45 a.m. Masks will be worn at all times inside.
