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!”
