Whatever, Whenever, and Then Some.
April's First Friday Art Crawl is here!!!!! On Friday April 3, we will be showing a very special exhibition, featuring the work of 10 different artists and 9 poets, titled "Ex Nihilo: Poetry & Art Collaborative." The exhibit is made up of 2D, 3D, installation based, and performance pieces. The performance piece will have 3 occurrences, beginning at 7:30 and running every hour until 9:30. There will be light refreshments provided.
This collaborative exhibition was organized by senior Appalachian student, Mary Claire Grube. The idea for this collaborative show comes from Grube’s interest in overlapping the art forms of visual art and poetry. She says that she has always been interested in the interaction that visual and poetic artists could potentially have and what they could potentially make. This exhibition is the result of such an artistic and creative interaction.
Please join us to celebrate art, both in the visual realm and the poetic realm, and to celebrate the spirit of collaboration!

The Nth˚ Gallery & Studios, the High Country's #1 "underground art venue on the second floor," is seeking a studio/gallery member starting in mid-January. The member will have a studio space to work in, but will also be required to participate in the running of the gallery, a commitment which requires between 10 and 20 hours per month and includes weekly meetings, all aspects of prepping for a show, and staffing monthly receptions held in conjunction with Downtown Boone's First Friday Art Crawls. Perfect for someone interested in a place to work while also learning the ins and outs of an exhibition space.
SPECIAL NOTE: The walls, ceiling and flooring in the studios are wood, so artists who need a space for welding or running a kiln (or other heat-related arts) may not find the space adequate for your needs.
TO APPLY: Please fill out the application below and email it along with 3-5 digital samples of your work (jpg, pdf, tiff, max 2mb file size each) to firstname.lastname@example.org by 9 p.m. on FRIDAY, JANUARY 9, 2015.

Get your creative on at the 16th Annual HalloweeNth Show and Costume party this Friday, Oct. 31 at the Nth˚ Gallery & Studios!
Dubbed "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Nth," the exhibition will feature works from over 30 High Country artists in a wide range of mediums.
Art lovers are invited to don their own creative costumes and join the fun downtown from 7:30 p.m. to midnight. The show is BYOB, and culinary artists are also invited to bring tasty treats to add to the table.
Held annually since the late 1990s, HalloweeNth has consistently been an open-hanging art show, to which any artist in the community can submit work. Because of the open nature of the show, it garners an excellent diversity of submissions and is consistently one of the strongest shows at the Nth each year. The evening also serves as an excellent place to view costumes as the Halloween crowd weaves in and about other downtown happenings.
The “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Nth” show features a mix of photography, mixed media, ceramics, sculpture, paintings and an interactive kinetic sculpture.
The Nth˚ Gallery & Studios is an underground art venue that houses artist’s studios and a gallery space that hosts shows on the first Friday of each month in conjunction with Downtown Boone art crawls. The Nth˚ is located at 683 West King Street in downtown Boone, across from the post office and above the Art Mart.

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.
