I received the following comment recently from DeAnna Locke, the administrator of the Ocracoke Preservation Society Museum:
"Please make plans to visit the museum and see our new exhibit “Portsmouth Beckons”. This exhibit features 14 photographs from Portsmouth Island by talented Outer Banks photographer, Michael Halminski.
To inaugurate this special exhibit, OPS will host an opening reception, at the museum, on April 27th, 2012 from 6:00-8:00pm. Mr. Halminski will be with us to talk about his work and his love of Portsmouth.
Also featured that night will be author James E. White, III, who will be signing his book, Portsmouth Island: A Walk in the Past, along with other books he has written about life and people on Portsmouth.
Work by Mr. White and Mr. Halminski will be available in our gift shop during the reception and throughout the season. The reception on April 27th will be a great evening for all members of Friends of Portsmouth, and anyone else who’s interested in learning more about that beloved island."
