Seaside Art Gallery was opened in 1961 by Chester & Barbara Smith, along with their friend William Wood.
The Smiths had been visiting the Outer Banks for years when they finally decided to open the gallery. The Gallery was made up of seven other artists; Barclay Sheaks, Betsy Shoff, Fred Smith, Betty Zoe Miller, M. Charles, Cynthia Haack & Jack Fretwell. 2011 was the 50th anniversary of Seaside Art Gallery.
This Outer Banks Art Gallery has everything from Abstract art to Sculptures and Ceramics.
