We are pleased to announce the 2018 Blowing Rock Plein Air Festival as a part of BRAHM Community Week. With Blowing Rock as the epicenter for this festival, artists are invited to take advantage of the beautiful High Country setting, set up their easels, and paint “en plein air.” This festival will take place on Friday, July 13th and Saturday, July 14th with a “Wet Paint Show & Sale” happening on the evening of July 14th at BRAHM. During the Wet Paint Show & Sale, public voting for awards in the People's Choice category will take place. Additionally, awards will be presented in the Artist's Choice category. Join featured artists Kim Abernethy, Kevin Beck, Joe Miller, Dwight Rose, and Jeremy Sams as they paint beautiful Blowing Rock.
