The Don and Catharine Bryan Cultural Series opens a new chapter on Tuesday, Oct. 3, with the unveiling of the group’s first Invitational Art Show at Glenn Eure’s Ghost Fleet Gallery. Featuring 20 outstanding Outer Banks painters, the show runs through Saturday, Oct. 28. Gallery hours are from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday.

“This exciting first will bring together many of our areas best known painters, showing their prodigious talents with their best new works,” says John Tucker, chairman of the Bryan Cultural Series. “Individually and collectively, they have contributed to the OBX art community for decades. Each artist will exhibit three-four paintings, and thus ensure that this rare event will be a visual delight for viewers and collectors alike.”

Painters in the exhibition include Steve Andrus, Petie Brigham, Linda Browning, Marcia Cline, Lisa Cooper, Liz Corsa, Gary Crane, Linda Crassons, Michael John Davis, Fay Davis Edwards, Glenn Eure, Travis Fowler, Jefferson Glover, Chris Haltigan, James Melvin, Brad Price, Ann Rubino, John Silver, Carole Trotman and Rick Tupper.

All works in the show are for sale with proceeds to be split between the artist and the Bryan Cultural Series.

The Bryan Cultural Series is a nonprofit organization formed in 2012. The board of directors is comprised of 10 community leaders dedicated to offering a series of high quality cultural events. These events will include a variety of visual, literary and performing arts.

The board strives to glean from talent that has attained regional as well as national recognition to maintain a high standard.

Towne Bank of Currituck, Village Realty, Ramada Plaza Hotel of Kill Devil Hills and Hilton Garden Inn of Kitty Hawk provide substantial support for this annual cultural offering of events. The Outer Banks Community Foundation manages the endowment for the Series.
