Democrat to host Jones House exhibit
by Anna Oakes
The Watauga Democrat is celebrating 125 years of
community journalism and history in July 2013, the anniversary of its
first edition in 1888.
To mark the occasion, the newspaper shares a historical display, including front pages during the years, photographs and press artifacts, at the Jones House Community Center on King Street in Boone.
The exhibit will be displayed throughout July in an
upstairs gallery at the Jones House, which is open to the public from noon to 5
p.m. Tuesday to Friday.
An opening reception with refreshments takes place from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Friday, July 5, in conjunction with the First Friday Art Crawl.
Other exhibits featured include works by adult
participants at the Art Mart Academy Studio and by Pegge DeLaney Laine.
In addition, author Noyes Capehart will be at the First Friday reception to discuss and sign copies of his new book, "Devil's Mark," about art theft and forgery.
