“This is our tenth show, and over the years it has become more upscale while having a little something for everyone – art, oriental rugs, estate jewelry, porcelains, furniture, and more,” said David Harwood, BRAHM Business Manager.

In addition, The Blowing Rock Art & Antiques Show kicks off with an evening Preview Party from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. on Thursday, July 28, giving guests a sneak preview of this year’s show and the first chance to purchase items for sale. “This is the best opportunity for guests to acquire that ‘must have’ antique or artwork,” said BRAHM’s Executive Director Lee Carol.

Preview Party tickets include admission to the three-day Blowing Rock Art & Antiques Show, happening 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, July 29-30, and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, July 31.
