“Out of the Blue” is an artist collective consisting of Marion Cloaninger, Susan B. Marlowe, Marsha Holmes and Beth Andrews. They are inspired by the natural beauty and spirit of the Blue Ridge region, as they express the real and imagined. Works range from whimsical, to symbolic, to vibrant, to classical. Their works are a celebration of the unexpected. The group has been sharing their processes and exhibiting together since 2015.

History of the Gallery

The Welborn Gallery was named after Marion and Jewell Welborn of Boonville for the generous lead gift they made to the Center’s capital campaign. The Welborns gifted the final funds needed to close the campaign and make possible the opening of the center.
