The event is free, open to the public, and will be held this Tuesday, June 28th at 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Museum.

While 28605 may be a familiar number, seven women artists from the High Country have found creative ways to express the extraordinary area encompassed by the Blowing Rock, NC zip code. These women have limited their impressions of objects, buildings, and scenes in their selected artistic medium to reflect the unique geographical and cultural qualities of the Blowing Rock area. This exhibit is sure to amaze and inspire both natives of and newcomers to the area.

Inside 28605 will be on view at the Museum from June 28 – July 24, 2016.
