Amazing, captivating, thrilling and simply “out-of-this-world” are some of the words people use to describe pieces from Affee’s Vicker’s amazing works of art. In an industry of artists who are educated through design school or use design applications and computers to hone their craft, Affee is self-taught. Affee’s long standing career in fabrication, construction and music are reflected in each note of these concept-to-reality designs. He began creating small works of art as a boy and built on that foundation in the 1970’s.
Affee Vickers’ ingenuity in the areas of glass, acrylic, stainless steel, titanium, abstract art, oil paintings, sculptures and the newly innovative “Blue Copper Series” and “Onyx Series” are uniquely created for those with a discerning eye and deep appreciation for artistic value.
On the Schedule for 2020…
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.
Our Welborn Gallery warmly greets every visitor to the Yadkin Cultural Arts Center as soon as you walk in the building. Our Welborn Gallery is designed to expose residents and visitors to continual and varied 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional pieces of art. You can always find something to inspire and challenge you with every visit. The Welborn Gallery operates on the same business hours as the Yadkin Cultural Arts Center: Monday thru Friday (9am-5pm) & during special events. We are closed on major federal holidays.
