Shackelford Banks
Mike Basher's inspiration comes from the solitude of the outdoors. His sublime, minimalistic photographs take a look at scenes often visited by others, yet his approach in isolating subjects leaves the viewer to often question, and even disregard its whereabouts.  Working exclusively with large format black and white film, each image is carefully crafted–seen through the process of making a precise exposure, hand developing the negative, final printing and display. What the viewer sees is essentially an extension of his persona. Quiet, precise, yet bold.

Craig Gurganus Studio

Craig was born in southern California, where he first spotted the outline of a fish in a surf board. In the 1980s, he began using recycled surf boards to create whimsical fish for the local businesses. 

Today, in his Pine Street studio - a former house and store - Scott's Grocery circa 1918 - Craig uses foam surfboards to mold marvelous one-of-a-kind creatures.

Jimmy Craig Womble began painting while a student at North Carolina State University where he switched from the engineering school to the school of design and graduated in 1995. 
     Womble was drawn to move to Morehead City in 2005; since then, he has not been at a loss for subject matter. Forgotten things all around slowly succumb to the power of nature." Womble prefers to get away from densely populated areas, often heading to places like Radio Island, Atlantic, Marshallberg or Harkers Island, "trying to get as much of this stuff as I can before it's gone."
