Watauga Arts Council wants exhibits

Article Published: Jul. 29, 2010 | Modified: Sep. 7, 2011

The Watauga County Arts Council is now accepting applications for month-long exhibits in the Mazie Jones and Open Door galleries in the Jones House Community Center during 2011-2012.

The Mazie Jones Gallery was named in honor of Mazie Jones Levenson, daughter of Boone's first family physician, Dr. J. Walter Jones.

His daughter Mazie's foresight and love for the arts, culture and history has ensured that the Jones House exists today as a community and cultural center meeting the ever growing need for space for meetings, events and cultural activities, a spokesperson for the Jones House said.

The Open Door Gallery was established in 1993 by the Watauga Arts Council's board of directors and endowed with the mission of serving new and emerging artists, including student artists.

The Jones House galleries are sponsored by Cheap Joe's Art Stuff and have been in existence since the late 1980s. The gallery program is one of the many ways the Arts Council works to serve local artists and make the "Arts a Presence in Our Community," the spokesperson said.

Applications are available online at A variety of media will be considered, as well as individual, shared or group exhibitions.
