Yellowhouse Gallery & Gifts: Creative Coastal Arts
Honoring Our Roots While Spreading Our Wings...
Come see all that's new this year!!
We've spent the winter rearranging the gallery in order to expand our offerings of fine American craft alongside our locally created jewelry, pottery, carvings, and home decor items.
For those who haven't heard the news, we also now own SeaDragon Gallery in the Waterfront Shops in Duck; we'll be keeping the same mix of fine American craft and local art there that SeaDragon has been known for. Curious about SeaDragon? Check out www.seadragongallery.com
Yellowhouse Gallery is located at MP 13.5 ON THE EAST SIDE of the BYPASS in Croatan Centre Plaza, north of Outer Banks Hospital -- 4711 South Croatan Hwy, Nags Head.
(This is the plaza with Soundfeet Shoes, Radio Shack, Rock-A-Bye, Michael's Gems and Glass, and Antiques, Etc.)
We showcase local award-winning photography and art as well as local and regional fine craft. Our offerings include local original paintings, prints and greeting cards; local photographs matted, framed, and printed on canvas; locally designed or created jewelry including seaglass pendants and earrings, larimar, hammered copper, and wire-wrapped lapidary; pottery; carvings and wood-turned giftware; photo gift books and children's books by local authors and illustrators; and a selection of OBX maps.
Local and regional artists have created most of the artwork within the gallery. We do represent some other artists whose work we have come to love over the years as they love our Outer Banks, although they may not be able to be here fulltime. We also represent artisans from around the country whose heart--and art--matches our own.
Customers ask: Why did you leave the old yellow cottage?
We leased that cottage for many years and loved it. Once we learned the property was for sale and the cottage would be taken down due to extensive structural termite damage, we knew we needed to find a new long-term home for Yellowhouse.
In 2013, we purchased "Door #3" in the Croatan Center on the Bypass in Nags Head, north of and across from the OB Hospital. Pete and his son Pete have outdone themselves in our new space, and it looks amazing. Come see! We are excited to share our new look and meet customers who don't usually travel the Beach Road. For those with GPS, our address is 4711 S. Croatan Highway.
|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."
