Preserving North Carolina’s Coastal Culture

It’s a curious item to cause a stir, amid the canvas paintings, the boat models, and the astonishing collection of antique and contemporary hand-carved decoys from the Core Sound region of Eastern North Carolina. But causing a little stir is what Joel Hancock’s great-great-great-grandfather’s whale harpoons are doing. Hancock, a retired insurance executive, and his wife, Susan, crowd around a table with Karen Amspacher, director of the Core Sound Waterfowl Museum & Heritage Center, and Pam Morris, the museum’s collections manager, as Hancock hands over a pair of forged-iron harpoon spikes, pitted with age.

Stick Around … For Something Completely Different

Not all art is created in Left Bank studios or SoHo lofts. Not all sculpture is chiseled from marble or cast in bronze. Architecture needn’t be live in. Some arises from a hot, humid grassy plot where volunteers directed by Patrick Dougherty bend and trim saplings into shapes resembling teepees, silos, beehives, minarets, tipsy wine bottles, tunnels, animals, even ghostly masks channeling the groupings at Stonehenge and Easter Island. This “environmental art” mounted at 300 locations worldwide is underway at Sandhills Community College Horticultural Gardens. Once completed, the structures should withstand the elements for several years before collapsing into heaps which, on a Scottish moor, might become a bonfire, here more likely thrown into a lake for a fish habitat or carted deep into the woods. Because unlike the pharaohs, Dougherty doesn’t desire permanence. Instead, he translates imagination and perception into tangibility, then moves on, feeling more satisfaction than sadness.
