On display at the Ghost Fleet Gallery in Nags Head from January 26 through Feb. 22, 2013, is the 34th Annual Frank Stick Memorial Art Show that includes a wide variety of local fine art ranging from conceptual to realistic. Featuring all original work, including sculpture, painting, drawing, fiber, pottery and mixed media, the show is the longest running visual art exhibition in the county. Stick gained recognition as an illustrator for magazines such as Collier’s, Saturday Evening Post, Ladies Home Journal and Outdoor America during the early part of the 20th century. He is most known for painting hundreds of hunting and fishing scenes to illustrate outdoor and adventure stories. In addition to his contribution to the art world, Stick was a man of vision.
