12th Annual Mollie Fearing Memorial Art Show May 4-27, 2009 Features an eclectic mix of local art on display at the Gallery at Roanoke Island Festival Park. Held in memory of Mollie Fearing, one of the founders of the root organization from which DCAC arose. In 1975 a group of Dare county residents met at the home of Mollie Fearing where they set about founding an organization that would introduce thousands of school children and adults to music, dance, theatre, painting, sculpture, poetry and literature. The organization would initially be called the Sea and Sounds Arts Council and later, the Dare County Arts Council. Mollie Fearing was elected president of the Arts Council in 1975 and was a vital supporter and advocate of the arts until the time of her death on September 3, 1997. Mollie’s contributions to the community were numerous, from serving as mayor for the Town of Manteo, to serving on the board of the Roanoke Island Historical Association, to her dedication to the arts. Mollie’s legacy in our community remains strong to this day. Open to members and residents. Cash awards. Opening Reception: Sunday May 3, 2009 4-6 p.m. Please call 252-473-5558 for more information.
