The gallery will be open throughout the day for visitors to view the new art until 5 p.m.

A Path for All SeasonsNorma Fowler’s colorful landscapes will be shown as well as Trena McNabb’s landscapes incorporating her continuing themes of Habitats and Mother Earth. More of Trena’s art on these themes will also be featured at the North Carolina Botanical Gardens in a one-woman show later this spring. 

Painted landscapes by Holly Berry and Jim Ruff’s mountain photography will also be exhibited. By popular demand, Jim Ruff will be the guest speaker again at Grandfather Mountain’s photography weekend which is already sold out. 

And good news from Wes Waugh! He is exhibiting two new giclees featuring Table Rock and a view of Grandfather Mountain. Besides being a talented watercolorist, Wes also excels as a printmaker creating his own giclees in his Boone studio. Wes is well-known for his art depicting the High Country and his admirers will be excited to see these new images.

Visitors are also welcome to view the collection during the afternoon until 5 p.m. Morning Star Gallery is located at 1151 South Main Street in Blowing Rock.
