Yellowhouse Moves To Duck Waterfront Shops in 2018!
In this, the gallery's 49th year, Yellowhouse makes a major move, joining sister gallery SeaDragon in the Waterfront Shops in Duck.
The two shops are joined in heart and space via a custom-built wooden archway designed by Pete Turek and constructed by his son, Peter C Turek of Firestop Graphics.
Yellowhouse continues to showcase local fine art photography through the works of owner Eve Turek, Ray Matthews and Phyllis Kroetsch who is also on staff. On any given day the chances are excellent you will meet one of our featured artists! We also offer handmade works in artisan jewelry, pottery, glass and wood, much of which comes from our region. We have a collection of decorative Outer Banks maps, including some antique maps and charts.
"49" is a key number in Yellowhouse's history, so it is fitting that our new chapter begins as Yellowhouse itself turns 49. Eve was 49 when she and husband Pete bought the gallery from founder Jack Sandberg and his wife Sue; Sue was 49 when she joined Jack in the gallery.
Customers continue to ask us: Why did you leave the old yellow cottage on the beach road?
We rented that cottage for many years and loved it. After the property was sold, we found a new home in the Croatan Plaza in Nags Head. Two years after purchasing SeaDragon Gallery in Duck, adjacent space became available there for lease, and we decided to join the galleries in one location.
Until our Nags Head space is sold, Pete will continue to offer limited framing by appointment as his health and strength allow. Please call him in advance with your framing inquiries: 252-489-9459.
And come see us in Duck! We look forward to sharing our new "House" with you!
|Eve Turek Photograph Wins Gold for US in International Competition|
|Eve Turek's photograph Meditation was chosen by the Professional Photographers of America as one of only three images to represent the United States in the Landscape Category in the first World Photographic Cup. An international panel of 15 judges chose Meditation as the Gold Medal winner. Eve's photograph was the United States' only gold medal, and helped the US secure the overall World Photographic Cup.|
The WPC is a joint effort between the Professional Photographers of America and the Federation of European Photographers. 22 nations competed in the inaugural WPC with images in six categories. Neither the photographers' names, nor their country of origin, was revealed during the judging process.
"I am very grateful to have been chosen to represent the United States alongside some of the very best photographic talent working in the world today. To have the further honor of having my image chosen as the Gold Medal winner is overwhelming," Eve said. "I just go back to what I say every time I step outside: please, and thank you."
