The February First Friday opens a new year of art and community at the Jones House in downtown Boone.

Join the Jones House on Friday, February 1, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. for an art reception featuring the career highlights of photographer Lee Gregory.

Gregory’s illustrious photography career will be on exhibition at the Jones House for the month of February. Be sure to make the Jones House one of your stops during the monthly First Friday Art Crawl to admire his work and enjoy free refreshments in the Mazie Jones Gallery.

In addition to the Mazie Jones Gallery, the Jones House features two additional galleries, which depict the history of the historical home, Boone and the surrounding area.

The Jones House proudly exhibits artists and art-based organizations from the High Country all year long. The 2019 gallery lineup features an eclectic and talented group of artists and organizations whose mediums vary from fiber arts to historic photographs and much more.

Each month a new artist or organization will present their work in the Mazie Jones Gallery and be featured in the monthly First Friday Art Crawl reception.
