Blue Ridge ArtSpace

Yarn circles to violin lessons, and wild imaginings in between

No matter your age, curiosity or artistic inclination, the Watauga County Arts Council’s Blue Ridge ArtSpace can move you into a wonderfully enthralled state of mind in no time at all.

Four galleries rotate exhibitions on a monthly basis: Main Gallery and Open Door Gallery display a sweep of local work; Serendipity Gallery showcases pieces developed in senior centers; and Young Artists Gallery stands in for artists eighteen years of age and younger.

The building’s commission-based gift shop offers the work of more than 60 local artists in collections that include basketry, pottery, glasswork, woodcarvings, drawings, painted scarves and handmade jewelry.

Classrooms host a wide range of workshops with a penchant towards drawing, sketching, painting and music, regardless of age.

The Watauga County Arts Council formed in 1981 with a serious jump in educational and exhibition programming since moving into its current space in 2013.
