BRCC Members Exhibit Creative Side

The event had been sold out for months, organizers explained to Blowing Rock News

By David Rogers. August 14, 2016. BLOWING ROCK, NC — For more than a quarter century, members of Blowing Rock Country Club (BRCC) have been showing off their creative sides with an annual Art Show.  The 2016 edition did not disappoint with 23 member-artists exhibiting more than 80 pieces, ranging from oils, to watercolors, to pottery, to ink, to photography.

COVER IMAGE: “Cigar & Stiletto” by Len Capel — stunning, dramatic image leaves a lot to the imagination…

BRCC general manager Martha Watkins explained to Blowing Rock News, “There are only a few requirements for this show. Obviously, it has to be original work by a member, but it also has to have been done in the last year. With more than 80 pieces this year, that means our members have been busy!”

What are YOU looking at?

Suzanne Miller was the 2016 chair and did a superb job of preparing the Grand Ballroom for the exhibit, as well as decorating the tables in the various dining rooms: the Terrace Room, the Sunroom, and the Laurel Room — all sumptiously decorated.
