Mimi, a wealthy and much-married divorcee played by Tatiana Zappardino, is giving a party in honor of the reputedly formidable parents of her daughter's fiancé. She engages a stunt waiter (Ryan Walker) to insult her guests, specifically, the stuffed-shirt Calthorpes (Howard Orr and Jennifer Meier). Daughter, Edie (Devan Willard), fearing that her mother would never be able to stomach her future in-laws, hires two actors to impersonate them (Tricia Odham and Phil Ashby); which works fine until the real Calthorpes arrive with their son, (Rickey Schneider). Rounding out the cast is: Shirl King, Andrea Horan, Sue Ferber and Jay Felty. The mistaken identities and fun proliferate into a state of hilarious confusion.

Don Bryan Retrospective Art Exhibit to Kick Off First Full Season of the Bryan Cultural Series


Ghost Fleet Gallery, in Nags Head
Savor an amazing viewing of the Don Bryan Retrospective Art Exhibit, which will be the first program in the 2014 season of the Bryan Cultural Series. The exhibit will be held from Feb. 27-March 8 at Glenn Eure's, “Ghost Fleet Gallery”. An opening reception will be held at the gallery on Sunday, March 2 from 2 – 5 p.m. The public is invited.

“This special tribute to our founder and acclaimed artist will feature some of Don’s earliest paintings that have never been exhibited publicly,” said John H. Tucker, Jr., chairman of the Don and Catharine Bryan Cultural Series Board of Directors. “Come enjoy perusing these ‘firsts’!”

The Don Bryan, A Retrospective 1964-2013 will include works from Don’s personal collections and works from several local collections. Also on display will be a sampling of sketches and paintings Bryan used to develop his finished pieces.

Born in Pennsylvania and spending much of his youth in Tucson, AZ, Bryan left in early 1942 to start his Air Force career during which he began to record his travels on canvas. After leaving the military service, Bryan and his wife established their home and his studio in Nags Head, NC where he served as Town Councilman and Mayor from the mid-seventies until the early nineties.

As an accomplished professional artist, Don Bryan has brought the Outer Banks past and present to life on canvas. A full-time resident of Nags Head since 1972 who passed away just recently, his work hung for many years in the halls of Congress and is found in many local businesses and collections including Vantage South, Wells Fargo, Sanderling Inn, and the Town of Nags Head.

About his work Bryan would say, “In my paintings, I do my best to capture the spirit of life styles as well as the beauty in the commonplace surrounding us - a field or bouquet of flowers, an aging face, a decaying building or the working boats and implements people use to make their livings.” The exhibition will feature works from public and private collections spanning Bryan’s time as an artist from mid 60’s to 2013.

The Bryan Cultural Series is a non-profit organization formed in 2012. The board of directors is composed of nine community leaders dedicated to offering a series of high quality cultural events. These events will include a variety of visual, literary and performing arts. The board strives to glean from talent that has attained regional as well as national recognition to maintain a high standard.

Substantial support for this annual cultural offering of events is provided by Village Realty, Dominion North Carolina Power, Towne Bank of Currituck, Hilton Garden Inn of Kitty Hawk, Ramada Plaza Hotel of Kill Devil Hills and Wells Fargo. For more information about these events, visit bryanculturalseries.org.

Outer Banks History Center Celebrates 25th Anniversary
With Call for Submissions

MANTEO, N.C. -- To celebrate its 25th anniversary, the Outer Banks History Center is partnering with the Dare County Arts Council to present an art exhibit, An Eye for Art, a Heart for History, showcasing the many aspects of the heritage and history of the Outer Banks and surrounding areas through a broad spectrum of artistic media and expression. Artist submissions are being sought.

"We're inviting artists to submit works that embody a personal sense of appreciation for our unique culture and history for display in the History Center Gallery," said Curator and Site Manager KaeLi Schurr. Awards will be presented in five categories: Best in Show, People's Choice, Excellence Award for Best Depiction of Theme, Excellence Award for a Two-dimensional Piece, and Excellence Award for a Three-dimensional piece.

The show is open to artists from any location. Membership in the Dare County Arts Council or Friends of the Outer Banks History Center is not a requirement. For a single entry fee of $25, up to three works can be submitted. Works must be original but unlike other shows and in the spirit of honoring the past, works do not have to have been created within the past year or two. Entries should be accompanied by an Artist's Statement (75 - 200 words) that puts entries in context and briefly explains the tie to Outer Banks regional history.

An Eye for Art, a Heart for History opens Feb. 28, 2014, and will be on display through Tuesday, Dec. 31, 2014, in the History Center Gallery in Manteo. All are invited to the opening reception, Feb. 28, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., hosted by the Friends of the Outer Banks History Center. It is free and open to the public. Come out and vote for your favorite entry and congratulate all the award winners.

The Outer Banks History Center's holdings include tens of thousands of historical photographs, along with maps, magazines, books, posters, pamphlets, and original works of art encompassing every topic of Outer Banks history. We invite artists to tap this resource for inspiration as you create your entries for this show or any others in the future.

Digital files depicting proposed submissions for An Eye for Art, a Heart for History are due by Dec. 2. The show will be juried; submission does not guarantee placement in the exhibit. All works must be for sale, and a portion of the proceeds will go to the Friends of the Outer Banks History Center and the Dare County Arts Council.

For more information contact the Outer Banks History Center or visit the center's website. The full prospectus can also be found on the calendar page of the Dare County Arts Council's website at http://darearts.org/calendar.
