Faces and Places: Paintings From The Museum's Permanent Collection
The art exhibited in this gallery comprises over forty years of collecting by the Onslow County Museum. The museum's goal in collecting artifacts is to tell the story of Onslow County and its people. Some paintings belonged to those who lived in Onslow, local artists created others, and still others depict locations in the county. The aim of this exhibit is not to showcase artistic works for arts sake, but to provide a visual interpretation of the county's story using art created and collected by its residents.
