Watauga Arts Council Kicks Off Spring With Their March 2nd Saturday Celebration

During March, the artists of the Serendipity Gallery are featuring an exhibit called “Clouds I Have Seen”.   Artists who exhibit in this gallery are participants in art classes at the Lois E. Harrell Senior Center in Boone and the Western Watauga Community Center in Cove Creek.   The classes are taught by Marsha Holmes and are free on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Young Artists Gallery is featuring the works of participants in the Home Sweet Home Paint-In led by art teacher Susan Payne, which kicked off Youth Art Month at the Blue Ridge ArtSpace. The artists range in age from 5 to 7 years of age and the large and colorful works of art cover all topics from local homes to Tweetsie!

The Blue Ridge ArtSpace will celebrate these exhibitions at an open reception on Saturday, March 10th from 5:30 to 7:30 pm at their location at 377 Shadowline Drive in Boone.   Besides the four new exhibitions, each of the four classrooms of the building will also feature interesting demonstrating artists and participatory activities.  

In the Green Room up and coming local author, Katie Hagaman, will be sharing her new book, “In This Book You Will Find” which is filled with colorful illustrations created by the artist. The book is designed to inspire a hunger for reading in young children and has already been warmly received in the High Country and far beyond.

In the Blue Room, accomplished and fanciful local artist Susan Marlowe will feature a demonstration on salvaging paintings.

In the Orange Room, members of The Yarn Circle will be sharing knitting, spinning, and other fiber arts.

The Purple Room will feature live music.

The 2nd Saturday Celebration of the Arts is a free, family friendly event. Refreshments are served. 5:30-7:30 pm.
