Visitors to Hatteras and Ocracoke Islands will simultaneously be visiting the gorgeous Cape Hatteras National Seashore. One of the largest preserved parcels of the Outer Banks, the National Seashore stretches across 70 miles of shoreline, encompassing seven villages on Hatteras Island, and providing visitors with miles of undisturbed, scenic beaches as well as some of the prettiest natural drives on the East Coast.
Works by local artists in every medium are available to purchase at this wonderful art gallery, but there are also historic offerings like authentic Thomas Nast wood engravings, Civil War-era maps and surveys and old Outer Banks charts. Located in an old cottage across from the beach, every room in this gallery is a feast for the eyes. As soon as you enter, you’re inundated with images of the Outer Banks: pelicans, sand fences, ocean waves, sea grass and sunsets. Gorgeous nature photographs taken by gallery owner Eve Turek , tastefully framed, line one wall, but prints are also for sale. Images by other Outer Banks photographers can be seen throughout the multiple rooms, and artwork ---- acrylic, oil, watercolor, pencil and ink, collages, even aluminum ---- is offered in many styles and subjects. Children’s books by local author Suzanne Tate are also sold here. Custom framing and matting is available in a building behind the gallery.
