April 4 – July 26, 2015
Bringing treasures from the coast to our mountains, this prestigious collection of duck decoys analyzes the careful craftsmanship involved in creating these beautiful sculptures, allowing them to stand alone as highly appreciated works of art. The exhibition is being generously loaned to BRAHM from our friends at the Cameron Art Museum in Wilmington, NC.
From the earliest days, textile development has involved a lot of time and hard work. BRAHM takes a look at North Carolina’s vast textile history, from the growth of industrial mill production in The New South to regional textile artists working today and keeping handmade techniques alive through traditional practices. Exploring the theme of labor and the laborious practices involved with textile creation, this exhibition presents a unique perspective on this history and finds grounding points with textile making today that allow viewers to take on new perspectives.

1923: The Blowing Rock Fire
May 9 – July 26, 2015
Visiting the village for the first time, you’d hardly find a trace of evidence of the devastating fire of 1923 that took down most of the town. After the event, the official Blowing Rock Fire Department was founded, and the town worked together to gather funds to purchase its first fire truck. This exhibition takes a look back at this significant moment in Blowing Rock’s history and is open in correspondence with the celebratory restoration of our historic fire truck that is to be revealed this July. BRAHM is excited to be collaborating with the Blowing Rock Historical Society to bring this project to our audience.
