Introducing the art of Dave Slyck:

Featured Artist @ Western Carteret Public Library for the month of November and December:



~ Dave Slyck ~


Dave Slyck, of Plan “B” Studio, is a displaced or possibly misplaced Yankee
enjoying life on the Crystal Coast. A teacher for over 40 years both overseas and stateside,
Dave settled on Emerald Isle for its scenic beauty and mild climate.  He chose wisely, Indy.

Dave’s enthusiasm in photography and upcycling art has blossomed over the past several years
as he traveled across the States in his motorhome. Although photography has been an interest
 to Dave over the years he admits “Until recently, I didn’t know my F-Stop from my ISO.”

Dave has won two “Excellence in Art” Awards at the distinguished Art From the Heart.  
His work has been displayed at the Bank of the Arts, Carolina Artist Gallery
and other local shows. He is a member of the Arts Council of Carteret County,
Jacksonville-Onslow Council of the Arts and Coastal Photography Club and has published
both photos and articles in a national auto magazine.

Dave’s main goal is to have fun and enjoy photography along with creating upcycled art pieces. He believes; the camera should be used as a creative means to express life’s pleasures.  Additionally, Dave wants to share his enjoyment of photography and upcycling art with you and hope you will enjoy it as well.

Welcome to my gallery, sit for a spell, relax and enjoy … as long as you want.


Thanks for taking your time … Dave

 There are many more pieces available that are not on exhibit. If you are interested in talking about my photography or upcycling art or are interested in purchasing a piece you may contact me at or call 252-354-9454

Thank you ...
Dave Slyck
