OWC Fine Arts Festival/Artfest - Jan 15

The Oriental Woman’s Club holds its annual Fine Arts Festival and Artfest
on Sunday January 15 from the noon to 3p at the OWC clubhouse. The Festival, which began in 1948, showcases drawing, photography, painting, ceramics, metal work, wood, fabric craft, glass, jewelry, weaving created by club members as well as students who reside in Pamlico County, and residents of regional special needs facilities. Some of it will be for sale.

The OWC began in 1914 with 8 women meeting over needlecraft and discussing community issues – sanitation, schools, healthcare among others. Within two years the group had grown to over twenty members and joined the NC Federation of Woman’s Clubs. 101 years later the OWC continues its work on local causes – supporting education thru scholarships, Relay for Life, Girls on the Run, the Coastal Woman’s Shelter, Meals on Wheels to local highway clean up. The OWClubhouse is at 1009 Gilgo Rd, Oriental. Light refreshments will be served.
