2nd Annual Mosaic Art Show

Creative energy was in the air as nearly one hundred and fifty people came in through the doors of the Outer Banks YMCA on January 20th to see artwork and hear live music at the second annual Mosaic Art Show. Church of the Outer Banks, Outer Banks YMCA, Dare County Arts Council and International Art Missions sponsored the event. The show featured more than 20 local artists including pieces from Ben Morris, Brent McCoy, Kim Diggs, Dave Hill, Pete Rudolf, as well as students at First Flight Middle and High School, just to name a few.

Mosaic began from the creative vision of Winfield Bevins, pastor of Church of the Outer Banks which meets at the Outer Banks YMCA in Nags Head. Pastor Bevins started Mosaic in January ‘06 as a way to show unity and diversity in the arts community and to prove that people of all ages have a place. Bevins says art is best when it is shared in community. Art should bring people in the community together rather than keep them a part.

The evening featured live music from local singer songwriter Jessica McLean and her band. McLean just came out with a new CD entitled “Designed to Dream.” Her live acoustic style added a unique touch to the show. D.J. Bruce J. offered his own special contribution by mixing fresh tunes. D.J. Bruce J. is a local favorite and regularly mixes music at the OBX Brew Station and Kelly’s. The Good Life Gourmet donated fresh, wonderful coffee and Bob’s Grill supplied delicious brownies. Both were enjoyed by all and were greatly appreciated!

Brent McCoy, director of International Art Missions, helped coordinate the night’s activities. International Art Missions is a group of artists who use arts education to bring hope and healing to children, communities, and countries around the world. They are a group of professional artists from different backgrounds who want to use their gifts and talents to help children realize their creative potential. Dawn Grey of Red Dawn Designs worked with the children as they painted surfboards on the walls of the YMCA. The children also enjoyed making beaded bracelets and necklaces and receiving candy!

The night was fun for everyone who attended. Artists of all ages were able to display and share their work with the community. The Mosaic Art Show is destined to become an Outer Banks tradition! This is the beginning of an ongoing partnership between these community organizations to bring the arts to Dare County.
