Our experience began back in the 1960's or early 1970's when we first purchased a seascape by M Charles, followed by some smaller paintings by Mary Jane Hopkins. Later on some by Vernon Rollins then one by Barclays Sheaks for my wife's birthday , can't remember the exact date. We always stop in when visiting the area, wonderful place.

Ms. Smith, it was a pleasure to drop by one of my favorite destinations on the Outer Banks. It is a thrill to see your business thriving still and that you took it over from your parents. I have been enjoying the gallery since the early 1970\'s. I purchased a beautiful and dramatic Dan Dunn painting from you last week. It will soon be on my wall. I am so pleased with it and with your services. You are a pro and it shows. Thanks so much!
