15th Anniversary Celebration — First Friday at the Turchin Center

Event date: 
Friday, May 4, 2018 - 6:00pm - 10:00pm

On the first Friday of every month (excluding January), the Turchin Center is open late as part of the Downtown Boone Art Crawl. Residents, visitors and the Appalachian State University community are invited to the Turchin Center to experience the exhibitions featured in it's seven galleries. The exhibitions at the TCVA change frequently so there is almost always something new to see. Meet friends, enjoy a glass of wine, and spend the evening with great art! The event is held from 6-9 p.m. and includes refreshments and a cash bar. Live music is often featured. The evening is free and open to the public.

On Friday, May 4, from 6 – 10 p.m., the community is invited to join in the celebration of the 15th Anniversary of the Turchin Center for the Visual Arts. This festive evening will include live music by Boone’s favorite classic jazz band, The Lucky Strikes. In addition to the refreshments, cash bar and incredible art, interpretive dancers, birthday cake and other special activities will make this anniversary extra-special.

For parents and grandparents, we invite you to register your children for free art activities in the TCVA art classroom during the celebration. Space is limited and registration is on a first come first served basis so register soon by calling 828-262-3017.

There will be a special VIP reception in the Moskowitz Gallery from 6 – 8 pm for our valued supporters. For those who wish to become supporters of the TCVA on the night of the celebration, we invite you to join us. Visit the reception table on May 4 to donate or make a gift of $100 or more online.
