The Outer Banks Forum for the Lively Arts and Dare County Arts Council are co-presenting the Spotlight On Performing Arts exhibit, which will be on display from February 11 through April 28, 2017 at Duck Town Hall.

The theme of the 4th annual exhibition is Spotlight On Performing Arts, which will reflect many facets of the performing arts, including musicians, singers, musical instruments and scores.
“DCAC is delighted to partner with the Outer Banks Forum for this show,” said Dare County Arts Council Programs Director Fay Davis Edwards. “It’s always exciting to see how our visual artists interpret the work of the performing arts. We are very much looking forward to seeing the incredible entries in this year’s show.”

Artists who are members of either the Forum, Dare County Arts Council, or residents of Dare County are invited to submit up to three original works of art in two or three dimensional visual arts media for the exhibit. A full prospectus can be found at

“This vibrant collaboration continues to bring together the extraordinary talent of our area’s performing and visual artists,” said President of the Outer Banks Forum for the Lively Arts Eddie Cooke.

The Best in Show Award recipient will receive a cash award and their work will grace the cover of the 2017-18 Forum Playbill. The Playbill is distributed to 500 individuals and businesses throughout the Outer Banks.

An artist reception will be held February 11, 2017 at Duck Town Hall from 3-5pm and will feature an awards presentation, light refreshments and an opportunity for the community to help select the People’s Choice Award.

The Outer Banks Forum for the Lively Arts is a non-profit organization that brings an annual series of seven outstanding diverse concerts to the area and provides opportunities for youth to participate in the arts.  All of the performances are partially underwritten by community businesses.
