Yelowhouse: Fine Art Photography & American Fine Craft
Opening for season April 12, 2017 with a fresh look and a new purpose.
Yellowhouse Gallery's award-winning photographers celebrate our world's natural beauty and cultural diversity.
Our artisans in fine craft create beautiful adornments for your home and your person in jewelry, pottery, glass and wood.
Yellowhouse is the only gallery in the region devoted to fine art photography. Our photographic artists have been honored with regional, state, national and international awards. The diverse subjects that inspire their photographic visions include Outer Banks seascapes and landscapes, wildlife and birds, the American west, Iceland, cityscapes, nostalgia, street photography in New Orleans, Cuba, and Paris, and the fascinating world of macro photography.
Our collection of fine American craft includes handmade jewelry, pottery, wood carvings, assemblages, collage and decorative and functional glass. While some of our artisans are local or regional, we represent artists from around the country. We also offer a small selection of fair trade craft items.

Yellowhouse Gallery is located at MP 13 ON THE EAST SIDE of the BYPASS in Croatan Centre Plaza, north of Outer Banks Hospital --
GPS Address -- 4711 South Croatan Hwy, Nags Head, NC
(This is the plaza with Soundfeet Shoes, Radio Shack, Rock-A-Bye, Michael's Gems and Glass, and Antiques, Etc.)
Customers continue to ask us: Why did you leave the old yellow cottage?
We rented that cottage for many years and loved it. Once we learned that our landlord was selling the property and the cottage would be torn down (it did have extensive structural termite damage), we knew we needed to find a new long-term home for Yellowhouse. In 2013, we purchased "Door #3" in the Croatan Center on the Bypass in Nags Head, north of the OB Hospital.
|Eve Turek Photograph Wins Gold for US in International Competition|
|Eve Turek's photograph Meditation was chosen by the Professional Photographers of America as one of only three images to represent the United States in the Landscape Category in the first World Photographic Cup. An international panel of 15 judges chose Meditation as the Gold Medal winner. Eve's photograph was the United States' only gold medal, and helped the US secure the overall World Photographic Cup.|
The WPC is a joint effort between the Professional Photographers of America and the Federation of European Photographers. 22 nations competed in the inaugural WPC with images in six categories. Neither the photographers' names, nor their country of origin, was revealed during the judging process.
"I am very grateful to have been chosen to represent the United States alongside some of the very best photographic talent working in the world today. To have the further honor of having my image chosen as the Gold Medal winner is overwhelming," Eve said. "I just go back to what I say every time I step outside: please, and thank you."
