College of The Albemarle’s Professional Crafts Jewelry program students and alumni will be featured artists at the Dare County Arts Council Gallery in Manteo for the month of February.

The Frank Stick Memorial Art Show is held in memory of Outer Banks preservationist and artist Frank Stick. It is the longest-running visual arts exhibit in Dare County.

Artists are encouraged to enter their most innovative work for the possibility of winning the distinctive Eure Best in Show Award, which is an ode to Glenn and Pat Eure for their many years of hosting the Frank Stick Memorial Art Show at Ghost Fleet Gallery.

The show is open to Dare County Arts Council members and residents of Dare County age 18 and older

The student artists create jewelry and metalwork from silver, copper and brass, often incorporating gemstones and enamels for color.

They work in a variety of styles using techniques and materials, including fabrication, forming, forging, casting, raising, mixed metals, stone setting, enameling, cold connections, patinas, resin and found objects.

The opening reception is from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 2, and the show will be on display through Tuesday, Feb. 27.
