Meagan Kimble has an easel set up in Practically a Gallery. She paints by the front window of the new shop she opened in April of 2012 with several partners. Located in downtown Manteo, the gallery and studio is a family and friends affair.

Her father, Jeff Whelan, a noted illustrator, sets the bar with a surreal painting of C.S. Lewis in the front room. Her sister, Casey Scarborough, makes the wire-wrapped jewelry. Kimble’s husband, Bryan, has a B.S. in studio art with a concentration in printmaking. He shows a variety of prints in the gallery. Her mother, Kris, makes handsome yet unusual furniture. The gallery is filled with a wide-variety of mostly two-dimensional art with a bit of three-dimensional pieces in the mix. The selection includes figurative, abstract and landscape paintings in oil, acrylics and watercolors. There are mixed media works, photography, collagraphs and digital prints, as well. Figurative sculpture and ceramic art is represented in the modest space. The gallery does not show your usual beach art and adds a new visual experience to the Outer Banks art scene.
