14th Annual Ellen Cook Gaskin Memorial Nature At Its Best Art Competition & Show
September 14, 2022 - October 8, 2022
The “Nature at its Best” exhibition and competition was created by the Gaskin brothers, Jeff, Chuck, David, Bob and Paul, to promote the visual arts in Stanly County and the Uwharrie region of North Carolina. They also sponsor the show each year, providing all prize money for the winners, as well as funding for the show reception. These wonderful sons of Ellen Cook Gaskin and Dr. John S. Gaskin Jr. of Albemarle have made this show an annual event as a memorial to their mother. Ellen Cook Gaskin had a deep appreciation for both art and nature and she shared that love and appreciation with her family. Through this show, her sons have chosen to honor her and to encourage artists to create expressions of “Nature at Its Best”. The show runs from September 14th thru October 8th.
