ArtMix and more at Jones House
February promises excitement, as the Watauga Arts Council
welcomes its new exhibits, featuring artwork from ArtMix and Two Rivers Community School.
On Friday night, Feb. 3, the Watauga Arts Council, located in the Jones House Community Center in downtown Boone, will have open exhibits and a reception from 6:30 to 8 p.m. with refreshments. This event is open to the public.
The Mazie Jones Gallery will feature ArtMix, a group of women with a common bond to make the world a more beautiful place through their creative energies and works of art.
Simply put, they are a “mix” of artists who work with paint, pastels, fibers, clay, photography and much more. The group finds its stimulation by working together on group projects, as well as critiques of their work from fellow artists. Sharing ideas, creating together, inspiring each other and building meaningful friendships are all part of ArtMix’s foundation.
Works featured during the month of February will include those from Orna Bentor, Tonya Bottomley, Cindy Breden, Mary Anne Caplinger, Amy Cooke, Judy Humphrey, Betty Powell, Mary Ann Prack, Marianne Suggs and Barbara Timberman.
The Open Door Gallery will welcome Two Rivers Community School, a North Carolina public charter school in Boone. Two Rivers students are offered weekly in-depth art classes and generate a sizable collection of work each year.
The Serendipity Gallery continues to feature the “Many Minis” exhibit during the month of February. “Many Minis” are 5-by-7-inch artworks by artists from the Lois E. Harrell Senior Center and the Western Community Center, under the direction of Marsha Holmes.
The Jones House Community Center is located at 604 W. King St. in downtown Boone. For more information, call (828) 264-1789 or visit http://www.watauga-arts.org.
