One of the most remarkable features of life on the Outer Banks is how dynamic the arts scene is here, and these are truly world class artists. For proof of that, look no farther than Eve Turek, photographer and owner, with her husband Pete, of the Yellow House Gallery in Nags Head.
A few months ago, Eve took home the gold medal for her photo Meditation at the first annual World Photography Cup held in Phoenix, AZ.
This is a huge, big deal. There were 22 nations represented with three entries in each category, meaning Eve’s photo was the best of 66 entries that were already judged the best in their countries. The judging was blind, meaning no country of origin was indicated, the photographer was not named, and there were no titles on the pieces. The judges considered only what they saw before them.
