Open Exhibitions for 2017

Each year the Watauga County Arts Council opens its galleries to artists from throughout the area in a series of open exhibitions. You may enter only one piece or several pieces (depending upon the rules established in the prospectus for that exhibition). All participating artists must be local (defined as living in Watauga or any adjoining county for some portion of the year) and must also be current members of the Watauga County Arts Council.
