Who was Mollie Fearing? In 1975, a group of citizens gathering at her house to begin what was originally called the Sea and Sounds Arts Council. It was established to bring cultural arts programing to Dare County, including dance, theater, visual arts, music, literature and more. More than 40 years later, her vision, and that of its founders, remains strong. Mollie was a vital supporter and advocate of the arts until she passed away on September 3, 1997. We continue to celebrate her memory and remember her many contributions to the area through this annual exhibit.
