Bogue Banks Library

     In April, the Gallery at the Bogue Banks Public Library will feature the creative work of Newport photographer Beth Kohutek. Beth frequently experiments with exposure, self-portraits, vantage points, and of course, light. Metallic paper has become her much loved choice for printing her work. The library’s showcases will exhibit classic, hand-painted porcelain collectibles by prize-winning artists Ruth Price from Atlantic Beach and Shirley Gambrell from Morehead City. This popular spring show features an outstanding selection of porcelain plates, pitchers, vases, boxes, clocks and other beautiful creations adorned with flowers, fruits, shells and other exciting designs.

     For the month of May 2015, the Gallery at the Bogue Banks Public Library will feature the colorful paintings of Morehead City painter Susan Hamrick. Susan loves to paint & capture the beauty & color around her, be it landscapes, people doing what they love, animals, or beautiful venues of travel. She is usually a colorist & wants others to see the beauty that she sees. Most of her paintings are in acrylic or oil. The library’s showcases will exhibit the unique 3D collages of Vicki Barrett.

     In April, the Art Gallery will feature the work of local photographer and upcycling artist Dave Slyck. Dave’s enthusiasm in photography and upcycling art has blossomed over the past several years as he traveled across the States in his motor home. Dave won an “Excellence in Art Award” at the distinguished Art From the Heart event. He has published both photos and articles in a national auto magazine. The display case will feature the colorful works of Central and South American folk art collected by local resident Clyda Lutz.

     In May, the Carteret County Public Library will exhibit the fiber art of Willi Foster. Willi Foster grew up in Holland and was thoroughly schooled in fiber and fabric crafting by her very talented mother. She learned functional and decorative ways to knit, crochet, sew, embroider, hook rugs, and fabricate clothes. The framed pieces she will display are cross stitched impressions of Frank Lloyd Wright windows and of birds she has seen or photographed. The display case will feature the beautiful art glass of Charlotte’s Daughters.
