The Island Art Shows are held at the Rodanthe-Waves-Salvo Community Center in the northern villages of Hatteras Island- just south of Liberty Gas Station and just north of North Beach Campground.
Each event will host over 20 local Outer Banks artists & crafters who will be showing and selling their work - everything from fine local art & prints to woodworks, surf art, seaglass jewelry, handmade soaps, hula hoops, photography and more.
Admission to the event is FREE, we just ask the attendees to save their bucks for supporting our local artisans & crafters--and possibly buying a raffle ticket or two. At each event, we will be selling Raffle Tickets for one lucky winner to receive a basket full of assorted local art, donated by our participating artists.
Each Island Art Show is a Benefit for a different Local Cause: from the OBX SPCA to the Rodanthe-Waves-Salvo Civic Association, Hatteras Island Meals and more. With the help of artist booth fees & raffle ticket sales, we are happy to give back to the community that has given us so much. There will be varying live local music at each Island Art Show, along with LIVE ART happenings - "Paint a Shake" with Chicamacomico Lifesaving Station and more!
