Maritime Museum Seeks Artists

July 7, 2012 - Southport, NC - The North Carolina Maritime Museum at Southport is calling on artists to exhibit and sell art work and goods this summer as part of the Department of Cultural Resources' 2nd Saturdays events scheduled on July 14 and Aug. 11.

2nd Saturdays combine the unique power of the arts and heritage with lots of hands-on fun each second Saturday during the peak summertime vacation months of June, July and August. For families on a budget looking for exciting things to do, for a "staycation" or a local weekend getaway, this program of the Department of Cultural Resources, has an answer with 2nd Saturdays.

The Museum's 2nd Saturdays themes include: "Fort Johnston: A Civil War Story" on July 14, and "Original Inhabitants: Cape of Feare" on Aug. 11.

"We seek jewelers, quilters, painters, potters, weavers, musicians, photographers, iron workers, crafters and other creative artists. There is no fee to participate, we just require that you supply your own table and tent, and any other materials you may need!," said Museum Site Manager Mary Strickland.

Farmers of high-value products such as honey, soy candles, cheeses, or herbs are also encouraged to participate. The "locavore" movement is growing, and the sale of organic foods would be a welcome addition to any of the 2nd Saturdays festivals.
