Join us on June 4th at 5pm in Welborn Gallery for an artist reception in honor of this exhibit “YES!” by local artist collective “Out of the Blue”.
If you missed our sneak peek facebook live tour, you can check it out here:
“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.
The Gallery is open for in person, socially distanced viewing Monday-Friday 9:30am-4:30pm.
On the Schedule for 2021…
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.
