With a mission of supporting the arts, sponsoring student scholarships and offering creative goods at affordable prices, Frisco Art Center is a worthwhile Hatteras Island stop.

See art demonstrations through the season, and view work from over 75 coastal, local, and North Carolina artists. The center actually houses three galleries – The Art Cottage, Sea Glass Gallery and a nostalgic Christmas shop. Wander from room to room to enjoy all three. The Christmas shop features a variety of ornaments all handcrafted by artists. There are no imports here. View hand painted ornaments, and pottery and blown glass selections for your tree!

Enjoy viewing wood, glass and metal sculptures, sea glass jewelry, ceramics and much more.  Imagine undulating glass jellyfish and glass statues of leaping marlin!

While on the island, take advantage of your proximity to the ocean. Breath in the gorgeous coastal environment and witness first hand what inspires many of the Outer Banks artists.

Cape Hatteras Lighthouse

Cape Hatteras Lighthouse

The Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, with its black and white candy-cane stripes, is one of the most famous and recognizable lighthouses in the world. Protecting one of the most treacherous stretches of the Outer Banks, with a beam of light that spans 20 miles into the ocean, the lighthouse is also the world's tallest brick lighthouse at a staggering 208' ft. tall.
