“Awaiting Further Transformation,” A Visual Art Exhibition, March 4 – April 29, 2023

  • Currituck County Arts Council Gallery, 126 Campus Dr, Moyock NC
  • Opening Reception Featuring a Performance by Seven Local Performers
  • Saturday, March 4, 2023, 6:00-8:00 p.m.
  • Performance start at 6:30 p.m.

Local artists Lynne Scott Constantine and Suzanne Scott Constantine investigate what “transformation” means in a post-pandemic world in “Awaiting Further Transformation,” an exhibition of mixed media and photo-based artwork opening in the Currituck County Arts Council’s Gallery on Saturday, March 4, 2023. The artists look back on the cultural, social, and personal upheavals of the last two years and invite us all to ask ourselves, “Now What?”

On the opening night of the exhibition, at 6:30 p.m., the artists collaborate with six local artists, writers, and musicians in a live performance of storytelling and music reflecting each artist’s personal experiences of transformation. The performers include:

  • Suzanne Blackstock,  flutist, teacher, band director
  • Emma Bland, storyteller, spiritual advisor, creator
  • Lynne Francis, artist, poet, Dare Arts gallery director
  • Linda L. Lauby, artist, writer, publisher
  • Mary Ann Remer, mixed media artist, printmaker, writer
  • Eve Turek, photographer, speaker, writer

Viewers, too, will have a chance to contribute their own thoughts on transformation. An interactive artwork, collaboratively created during the exhibition’s run by those who wish to participate, gives community members and visitors a way to add their voices and thoughts to the collective search for new directions.

The exhibition will be on view through April 29. The gallery is located in the Currituck County Public Library building at 126 Campus Drive, Moyock. The gallery is open Mon – Fri 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.; Sat 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. The exhibition and performance were made possible in part by an artists’ support grant from the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.
