The Way Watauga Works is an exhibition exploring the history and essence of work of individuals in Watauga County, featuring portraits and oral histories collected from 31 entrepreneurs, artisans, public servants, and others working within our community. The participants' ages ranged from 24 to 78. Each oral history is accompanied by a full-color portrait of the subject captured by local Boone photographer Ashley Warren of Natural Craft Photography. The Way Watauga Works oral histories were collected and transcribed by Willard Watson with assistance from undergraduate students at Appalachian State University.
Scholars & Scones is a monthly educational program which invites patrons to spend a morning sipping coffee, eating locally-baked goodies, and learning about the latest research, writing, and creativity taking place in our region. There are complimentary breakfast goods from Backstreet Bakery and fresh cups of Hatchet Coffee Co. Dangerfield Blend will be served.
Admission is free for members and $5 for non-members.
