Artists Alley: Building a Creative Community in Blowing Rock, which explores the rich history and artistic output of the legendary Blowing Rock artists’ enclave of the same name. Located on a single eponymous road just minutes from Main Street off Highway 221, the small community of Artists Alley emerged in the late 1950s and would ultimately host a varied yet tightly knit band of artists and craftspeople living and making alongside one another for over 60 years. Featuring works by and stories of such local icons as Philip Moose, Herb Cohen, José Fumero, Frank Sherrill, Lynn Jenkins, Barbara and David Ballesty, and John Brady, this exhibition narrates these artists' singular and collective stories.



BRAHM provides cultural enrichment by promoting the arts, and Southern Appalachian heritage and history, through educational programs, exhibitions, activities and permanent collections.
