We are very excited to welcome back the talented Kelli Hertzler to the Wilson Downtown Gallery for December and January! She specializes in watercolors, botanical works, and draws much of her inspiration from the outside world. Bloom Magazine currently features Kelli and her mother and fellow watercolorist, Snuffy Hartman, who will also be at the reception with several of her paintings.
The Harrisonburg Homes Team is hosting their Holiday Open House – we encourage everyone to stop by for some Holiday treats and hot beverages, and to enjoy the special live music provided by the Tremolo Flute Trio (Pam Mason, Andrea Nolley, and Claire Wayman). We’ll also lead some kids crafts, too! And did we mention we are right on the parade route for the Christmas Parade? The parade starts at 7pm, and don’t forget to stay after to see the lighting of the tree and a concert by the JMU Marching Royal Dukes on Court Square! This evening is shaping up to be a highlight of the Holiday season!
About Kelli Hertzler
After earning a bachelor’s degree in Fine Art (with Biology minor – a huge influence on my art) from James Madison University in 1996, I began working for a small business as an artist and web designer/manager. That was twenty-one years in which I drew, painted and designed at work. On my own, I pursued watercolor – a medium in which I still consider myself an enthusiastic learner. For ten years, I have shared my skills and passion by teaching children in a large homeschool cooperative and on occasion teaching adults.
My favorite activity – even better than studio painting – is taking long hikes in one of the many public forests or state/national parks in my local area and throughout Virginia. And you can bet I will have art supplies in my pack.
