The eight North Carolina artists who have been on Ocracoke this week and painting all over the island will hold a sale of their work today from 4 to 7 p.m. on the porch of their rental home at 187 Silver Lake Road.

All are invited to stop by to meet these plein air–or outdoor–artists, enjoy their many creative interpretations and purchase their art. The artists are Mike Rooney, Dan Nelson, Joanne Geisel, Ann Hair, Karen Crenshaw, Peg Sharp, Oona Lewis and Lynda Chambers

A portion of the sale proceeds will be donated to an island nonprofit.
