Down Creek Gallery will begin its tenth year of promoting local and regional artists and their works in its “Expose Yourself  To Art” series with a season kick-off open house tonight from 5 to 8 p.m. (May 13).

Marissa Gross, who purchased the gallery last year, said this opening event will showcase the nonprofit Ocracoke Child Care Center and include art by local preschoolers.  Donations for the center will be accepted.

This year, Gross is featuring new artists and jewelers this year to complement her array of local and regional artists’ work in pottery, glass and home accents.

The Ocracoke Civic and Business Association (OCBA) will have its open monthly meeting, 7 p.m. in the Community Center.
