Carol Beal Exhibit

Unsupervised will be on display in the Vault Gallery February 2-24, 2024.

Opening reception on Friday, February 2 from 6pm to 8pm, where visitors can meet Carol and view her work. The opening reception is free and open to the public.

In February, our Vault Gallery will feature fiber work, paintings and jewelry by Carol Beal.

In this show, Carol plays with a lot of color, combining a wide range of materials including acrylics, polymer clay, fused glass, found objects and fiber weaving to create unique jewelry, paintings and framed beaded art.

Carol’s work is inspired, and prompted by the world around her including nature, travel and the people in her life. She enjoys colorful, big and bright combinations. Carol fuses her own glass for jewelry applications, and weaves using a traditional Japanese kumihimo marudai stand for jewelry, but also has a large floor loom for scarves and bigger projects. When she paints, Carol primarily use acrylics and water-based materials.

“I make something every day – often starting with a single paint stroke, or a single bead that I’ve made and let it grow from there. I tend to let an art piece grow organically as the mood strikes or when a particular color  combination “feels” right. I love having fun and staying positive, and remaining playful. Hopefully that attitude is evident in my work. I love it when someone finds just the right art wearable, piece of jewelry or painting that I’ve done and they walk away happy.” – Carol Beal

Dare Arts is located at 300 Queen Elizabeth Ave. Manteo. Current gallery hours are Tuesday-Friday: 10am-5pm and Saturday: 10am-4pm.
