“A Fish Out of Water – Watercolors by Frank Stick” an exhibit featuring fish watercolors by Frank Stick will be on exhibit at Roanoke Island Festival Park November 22 – December 31. The exhibit can be seen daily 9a.m. to 5p.m. in the small gallery in Ticket Sales. The exhibit is sponsored by Twiddy & Company Realtors. The paintings are part of the permanent collection at the Outer Banks History Center.
Frank Stick began his career as an illustrator in the early 1900’s, and popular publications such as Sports Afield, Field and Stream, Redbook and Saturday Evening Post regularly published his work. Stick’s love for fishing and the out-of-doors led him to North Carolina’s Outer Banks. He played key roles in the establishment of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, Fort Raleigh National Historic Site and Wright Brothers National Memorial. He also began developing an area that later became the town of Southern Shores.
Later in his life, Stick painted more than 300 watercolor depictions of fish. “Frank Stick was a renaissance man, this exhibit celebrates his work as an artist, I welcome the community to enjoy his beautiful fish paintings” stated Kim Sawyer, Executive Director
Sawyer announced that RIFP will be launching a new line of Frank Stick merchandise that will be available at the Park’s Museum Store featuring note cards and posters with selected fish images. A portion of the sales of the Stick merchandise will go to the Frank Stick Memorial Fund at the Outer Banks Community Foundation in support of the Outer Banks History Center.
