I’m thrilled to have another opportunity to show my art in this beautiful gallery space within Harrisonburg Homes realty. December 1, 2017 from 5-8 pm will be the Artist’s Reception for this exhibit. Fifteen or more of my watercolors and colored pencil paintings will be on display. Local landscapes, forest-scapes and micro-landscapes (where I zoom in to a tiny corner of the natural world) are featured in most of these pieces.

My mother, Snuffy Hartman, will join me with a few of her paintings in celebration of the article in Bloom magazine this quarter featuring both of us (see Bloom post). The author, Michelle Henry, might also stop by. In addition, all of this is happening:

  • a flute trio will provide live music
  • light refreshments will be provided by the Harrisonburg Homes team
  • it’s First Friday in Harrisonburg
  • and the Christmas Parade at 7pm goes directly past the front door of the gallery

Stop in and warm up before or after the parade. This is always a fun, festive night!

The show runs from December 1 through January 29. Open 10 – 5, Monday – Friday. Plus First Fridays! 5-8 pm.

“Bloom” Magazine Article

Celebrating! Bloom features an article on my mom and me in the Winter 2017 issue. This is a publication celebrating women of the Shenandoah Valley. The article, which focuses on our shared love of watercolor, was written by a sweet friend, Michelle Henry, who has an authentic view into our relationship and how art has bound us together. I got all teary reading it!

The article stretches over four pages. If you are local, you can pick up a free copy at the library atrium or businesses around Harrisonburg.

Update: This issue is now available in an e-edition. Bloom Fall 2017.

In December, I will have an Artist’s Reception for a new exhibit in downtown Harrisonburg with extra copies of the magazine, as well as my mom, a few of her paintings and hopefully the author.
