Whatever, Whenever, and Then Some.
Come out this Friday, Sept. 5 from 7:30 to midnight to celebrate the vibrantly colorful creative genius of the one and only Blake Lindsley Wiley, a true Boone character who passed away this past spring. Curated and hosted by his family and friends -- definitely one to not miss.
“Blake was a fine artist, he really did achieve that, and he did it on his own,” says Sam Wiley, Blake's father. “I think his work is excellent, and I don’t say that too much about art.”
The show will feature a mix of his work, including nearly 30 years of highly detailed guerrilla drawings from rock and roll shows, fine art originals, a series of paintings of rustic cabins in serene Appalachian settings, and fabricated medieval weapons.
Throughout his career, Wiley never showed in a gallery setting, outside of a piece here in there in occasional group shows. “A world with Blake in it was just more colorful,” says Alex Neofotis, Blake's girlfriend. “This is a show to honor his work, and to have the show he never had.”
Framed and unframed prints and custom-printed t-shirts of Wiley’s work will be on sale during the show, with proceeds going to help purchase a headstone for Wiley’s grave site.
On Friday, April 4 we're reprising our one of the biggest shows in our history by featuring some very small art for the monthly Downtown Boone Art Crawl! We'll have art from over 20 High Country artists include paintings, drawings, ceramics, metal and wood sculpture, fiber art, photography and mixed media -- all under 6" in size. The art may be small, but it's mighty! Attendees are invited to bring and share their own culinary creations, bonus points for miniaturized snacks. Show is BOYB, starts at 7:30 p.m.
SPECIAL UPDATE: For those of you who know the enigmatic outsider artist Wiili (1956-2003), we will have a never-before-seen "Wiili" in our silent auction. Now's your chance to add one to your collection! To learn more about Wiili, here is an article in the Mountain Times and a page with samples of Wiili's work at Blowing Rock Galleries

It's official, the Nth˚ is now old enough to drive.
We're also darn happy we've stayed alive for 16 years, providing emerging artists with a place to show in the High Country and studio members with a place to work. So help us make it to 17!
On Friday, August 2, 2013, We're hosting a SPECIAL DOUBLEHEADER fundraiser and anniversary celebration, in conjunction with downtown Boone's First Friday art crawl. See sidebox for details -->
If you’re unable to attend but would still like to donate, please fill out our printable form and mail your donation today.
This year, we need to raise not only enough money to support our operating costs (the usuals of toilet paper, paint and power bills) but also to do some desperately needed gallery repair, including broken windows and replacing aging or broken equipment (including a power drill, belt sander and refrigerator). No donation is too small (or too large), and all help us to keep the lights and the door open on for another year.
So dig out your old prom dress or bow tie and come help celebrate our Sweet Sixteenth in true Boone style!
And thank you for helping us put the “Whatever, whenever, and then some” into the Nth˚.
