Bogue Banks Library

     During the month of January, the Art Gallery will feature the photography of Leslie McCombs-Porter of Marshallburg. Introduced to photography by her father, she switched to digital photography when she moved to this area in 2001. Leslie captures beauty in ordinary things that have been worn and transformed over time, use, and the elements. The display cases will feature the art glass of Charlotte’s Daughters. With studios in both Atlantic beach and Tarboro, these sisters create glass works inspired by their beautiful surroundings.

Carteret County Library
     In January, the Art Gallery will feature the work of Craig Sparrow. Sparrow has worked as an art educator for the past twenty years and earned a BFA and MAED in Art Education from ECU. His work varies from abstraction to photorealism. The display case will feature the work of Don and Laura Saddlemire of Sneads Ferry, NC. Each of their weathervanes, ornaments, and charms is handcrafted from recycled copper shingles that came off of a 1920’s North Carolina Outer Banks home.
