This fall Ocracoke residents and visitors will have more opportunities to expand their horizons thanks to "Ocracoke Alive" a new organization dedicated to promoting the arts and other creative endeavors on the island.
Among Ocracoke Alive's new promotions is the Fall 2011 Artist Film Series.
First on the agenda is "M.C. Richards, The Fire Within." According to the producers of the film, "M.C. was potter, poet, philosopher, and painter, but above all, a teacher. Her extraordinary career stretched from Black Mountain College to Creation spitiuality, from Rudolf Steiner advocate to inspirational artist and teacher. She died in 1999. Author of the classic 'Centering: In Pottery, Poetry, and Person and Toward Wholeness.' An inspiring human."
This first film will be shown tonight, Tuesday, September 13, at 7:00 pm at Deepwater Theater on School Road. The film is free, but donations ($5 suggested) will help pay for renting the space. This film is open to ages 16 and up.
