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!

We love our downtown and we love the work that Harrisonburg Downtown Renaissance has done to make Harrisonburg a vibrant, unique, and developing place. Every year HDR throws a big party (aka Renaissance Night) to raise funds and celebrate downtown.

We're going to the event and we think you should too! We'll give you 6 reasons why you should clear your evening on Saturday, May 21st and attend Renaissance Night.
