[This blog post comes from the Outer Banks History Center.]
The Outer Banks History Center in Manteo was the recent recipient of the new book, Glenn Eure: Artful Rogue of the Outer Banks, written by the artist’s wife and gallery partner, Pat Eure, and published by Linda Lauby of the Outer Banks Press. The full-size, full-length book came about as a birthday tribute for Glenn’s 80th birthday and is filled with evocative color photos of the artist’s watercolors, wood cuts, sculpture and mixed media pieces. Pat’s poetry is interspersed amongst the art.
Pat and Glenn, an unparalleled artist and local icon, are well known in the Outer Banks community for their support of the arts and involvement with the Dare County Arts Council and other local causes. The Eures were active in Icarus International and instrumental in founding of the Icarus Monument to a Century of Flight. The only thing bigger and brighter than this book is the spirit of its creators, Miss Pat and Mr. Glenn.
