The Seafood Capital rightfully teems with sea art.

Sunset River Marketplace in Calabash is celebrating with “Something Fishy’s Going On,” an end-of-summer, multi-media exhibit showcasing the gallery’s array of fish and sea-life-themed work.

Exhibit highlights include an aluminum wall sculpture, a folk-art fish bench and artist Marilyn O’Conner’s fanciful watercolors displayed in brightly hued sea-foam frames.

Twenty-two regionally renowned artists are among those featured, including gallery owner Ginny Lassiter’s home décor and folk art collection.

Other featured artists include Rick Steingress and Cat Wondergem (fish prints), Desiree Horton, Kathie Wolk, Maribeth Graham, Shandi Berls and Jean Caveness (pottery), Norman Waite, Mary Owens, Donn Mccrary and Anitta Martin (oil), Tony Carr (stained-glass mirror), Kathy Turnauer (fused glass), Beth and Marvin Pethtal (home décor), Janet Isenhour (collage), Beth Hill (acrylic), Kevin Kuhnel and Anne Cunningham (metal), Janna Stidham (glass mosaic) and Marilyn O’Conner (watercolor).

The exhibit continues through Aug. 31.

The gallery is at 10283 Beach Drive in Calabash next door to the American Legion.

Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays.
