Every year in the park in downtown Blowing Rock, folks from all over the area assemble their booths for “Art in The Park” This event is held one Saturday per month starting in May, and finishing up in October. My wife Christine and I decided to attend for the first time, earlier this month, and I must say that I was amazed at the wide range collectibles and talent that exist.Around every corner there was something new and interesting, with many items looking like they belonged in a large city gallery. Between hand-blown glass vases, to intricate cigar humidors…and everything in between we could have taken a hundred photos. I have included just a few for this blog, but none more amazing than the paraplegic artist who accomplishes more with his mouth than most of us can with two hands. I look forward to the next month.
