Art Show & Silent Auction

Here is your opportunity to own an original Ocracoke work of art. On Jan. 25, 2014 the Ocracoke Preservation Society will be hosting an art show and silent auction titled, "Ocracoke, Through Your Eyes." 

Nearly 100 artists have received canvases (all 6" x 8") with which to be creative. Here are three examples:

Artist: Nancy Carlson

Artist: John Simpson

Artist: Pat Schweninger

More canvases can be viewed on line at

OPS will be accepting remote bids (explanation of that will come soon) and will mail the canvases if you win. 

 Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is a 1921 letter written by a former slave, Harrison Williams, to Ocracoke native, Martha Ann Howard Wahab. You can read it here:
