Upcoming Events at the Blowing Rock Art and History Museum

August 19, 2015 from 10 AM to 3 PM - Nature Journaling Workshopwith Sue McBean   The goal for this workshop is not to have a perfect end product, but to learn from and enjoy the journey. The workshop will begin inside with short, simple pen and paper exercises to spur creativity, and will then venture outdoors and experiment with different methods of opening the senses to hear and see what is presently around more clearly.

August 20, 2015 at 4:30 PM - (Third Thursdays)  Vollis Simpson,the Artist Who Rejuvenated a Town with Gerret Warner and Mimi Gredy    Vollis Simpson was a mechanic and house mover who built some ornamental wind mills in a field next to his workshop.
