Hatteras Island Galleries
Wild and secluded, Hatteras Island art is seemingly always inspired by its natural surroundings, from sea oat covered sand dunes, to the red drum and marlins that swim offshore, to the tallest lighthouse in the nation, the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. For pieces that truly capture the Outer Banks in all its wild, natural glory, Hatteras Island galleries are a great place to explore.
