The Dare County Arts Council (DCAC) has announced a Call for Entries for the 19th Annual Mollie Fearing Memorial Art Show presented by Mollie A. Fearing & Associates.

The annual “Mollies” features an eclectic mix of artwork, which will be on display at the DCAC Gallery in downtown Manteo, May 1-31.

This show is held in memory of Mollie A. Fearing, one of the founders of the Dare County Arts Council.

“My mom always used to say ‘if you feed them, they’ll come,’ and this holds true for this show. A mix of talented artists and good food will bring a great slice of people to the opening reception on May 1. The show provides quality exposure for our local artists in a wonderful environment,” said owner of Mollie A. Fearing & Associates and Mollie Fearing’s daughter Grizelle Fearing.

Artists wishing to participate in this year’s exhibition can find a prospectus online at and at the DCAC Gallery.

Entries can be dropped off April 27 and 28 between 10am and 5pm at the DCAC Gallery, 300 Queen Elizabeth Ave. Manteo, NC.

The Mollie Fearing Memorial Art Show is open to Dare County Arts Council members and residents of Dare County age 18 and over. Awards include Best in Show, Excellence Awards and Honorable Mentions, and a People’s Choice Award selected during the opening reception.
