Join us for the opening reception for the Digital Watauga exhibition of selected images from the old photo morgue of the Watauga Democrat, as curated by WD co-owner Paul Armfield Coffey prior to his death in 2007.
All images displayed in this exhibition are modern reprints from the originals and are offered for sale. All proceeds go to the Digital Watauga Project to help cover the costs of preserving and digitizing this remarkable collection of Boone and Watauga County's history containing more than 10,000 images.
