Artists in Residence

Edgewood Cottage was the first home and studio of Elliott Daingerfield and where he held his “Painting Lady” classes at the turn of the 20th century. His legacy continues with this program that will feature local artists over a period of eight weeks beginning from Tuesday June 25, 2015 through August 18, 2015. It is noteworthy that all participating artists are members of Blowing Rock Historical Society.

Visitors will be personally greeted by the artist showing that week and will be able to personally talk with them and will be able to purchase their works.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to view and read about Elliott Daingerfield’s famed works while strolling through his legendary cottage. The cottage is testament to the unwavering preservation efforts of the Blowing Rock Historical Society.

Admission to Edgewood Cottage and Artists in Residence Program are free.
