This painting of the Ocracoke lighthouse is among the works that will be auctioned Jan. 22.

Due to health concerns associated with the pandemic, the OPS has postponed the auction instead of trying to have it online again this year.

The goal is to have an in-person auction towards the end of February. More details will follow.

The Ocracoke Preservation Society will hold its annual “Ocracoke Through Your Eyes” art auction at 5 p.m. Jan. 22 in the Ocracoke Community Center.

Descriptions of each piece will be on the OPS Facebook page, Instagram page and website.

New pieces are arriving daily, previews will start soon. Online bidding will start Jan. 15.

There is still time to submit artwork. If you need a canvas, just email or call and leave a message and the OPS will leave one on the porch for you to pick up.

To receive a canvas, call 252-928-7375 or email
