We are so excited to have the very accomplished and incredibly talented artist, Brenda Hounshell, display her artwork in the Wilson Downtown Gallery for the months of October and November. We can't say enough good things about these vibrant and exquisite paintings so you'll just have to stop in for yourself and see why we love Brenda's artwork so much.
The annual Farm-to-Table Breakfast, previously held at Clementine, is scheduled for October 24, 2016, at Ruby's Arcade in downtown Harrisonburg. A delicious collaboration from local farms provides an incredible breakfast, complete with local coffee and a friendly atmosphere. There really is no better way to highlight our amazing local farms than in a breakfast spread at a favorite downtown location in the Culinary District!
We are privileged to have the artwork of Denise Kanter Allen displayed at the Wilson Downtown Gallery for another month. If you stopped by for our August First Fridays reception then you saw her trademark whimsical, vibrant, and uniquely eye-catching acrylic paintings. But in September there will be even more of her talented work on display - so stop back in and see what's new!
