John Scrudders’ abstract mazes are created with tiny designs and seemingly erratic lines on upcycled items such as wakeboards and mirrors. He invites the viewer into a discussion of topical issues through a landscape of buzzing movement and compact confusion.

Though born and raised in California, John Scrudder has called North Carolina his home since 1997. He served active duty in the United States Army for 11 years and has worked the past 12 years as a DOD GS Civilian. He lives in Fayetteville with his wife Melanie, his son, Tiziano and their dog, Sir William.

YES! by OUT OF THE BLUE

On display April 29 - June 25

Join us on June 4th at 5pm in Welborn Gallery for an artist reception in honor of our next exhibit “YES!” by local artist collective “Out of the Blue”.

If you would like a sneak peak of this show, we are also presenting a live gallery tour at 4:30pm on Thursday, April 29th for those who are unable to attend the in-person gathering.

Out of the Blue (OOTB), is an artist collective consisting of Beth Andrews, Marion Cloaninger, Marsha Holmes and Susan Marlowe.

The exhibit “YES!” features the creations of these four visual artists from the Appalachian mountains of North Carolina.  From the literal to the whimsical, their work intersects between the worlds of imagination and inspiration. Their art includes beautiful visions of Appalachian mountains and culture, vivid contemporary mixed media pieces and playful and joyous celebrations of life.  Their work expresses a shared commitment to saying “yes” to the unexpected.

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.  

About The Gallery

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.
