The annual Veterans Day celebration in downtown Harrisonburg is always a special treat and an honor to be a part of. Our team is proud to open up our office during this special event to anyone who would like some free refreshments or to view the art currently displayed on our gallery walls by local artist, Brenda Hounshell. Take a look at the full lineup of events during the week and for the afternoon of Sunday November 12th!
Although withSimplicity has been in the downtown scene for a few years now - they recently expanded and moved to the storefront on 108 S. Main street where they share the space with Restorative Massage Therapy. They celebrated their grand opening on October 6th. The owner, Irina Dovganetskiy, graciously answered our questions about the new location. With many of their products made in-house with fresh and organic ingredients and their support of body positivity, this new location has much to offer!
We are so excited to have the accomplished and incredibly talented artist, Brenda Hounshell, display her artwork in the Wilson Downtown Gallery for the months of October and November. We so enjoyed having her last year, and are excited to see her new works this year! Make sure to stop in and see why we love her artwork so much!
We are privileged to have Amanda Dicken as our next artist in the Wilson Downtown Gallery. Her portraiture done with pen, watercolor, gouache, acrylic paint, and pastel is unique, eye-catching, and done with remarkable skill. This show is sure to draw you in and make you take a second look.
As someone who works downtown, I have walked by the Free Clinic hundreds (if not thousands) of times. And yet, I was not fully aware of what a remarkable and necessary community resource it is - a (quite literally) life-saving service for many of my neighbors. The clinic is full of exceptional people on a mission "to provide affordable, sustainable healthcare services for low-income and uninsured adults, primarily through volunteer resources and community support." An incredible resource for so many in the community, one Free Clinic doctor calls his volunteer work at the clinic "the purest form of medicine." Read on to learn a little bit about what the clinic is all about.
We are thrilled to have Kate Scheel as our next artist in the Wilson Downtown Gallery. Stop by our office to see Kate's eye-catching and evocative paintings and drawings or join us for a joint artist reception and Holiday Parade open house on Friday, December 2nd!
