We are really excited for next month's block party on October 7 celebrating the arts of Lexington, Virginia! Located on Washington Street between Main and Jefferson, the block party will highlight the immense artistic culture that can be found in our beloved little town with live music from Greenhouse (thanks to the sponsorship of Southern Inn Restaurant and Dan Vance/Edward Jones), local weavers, potters, metal workers, and live painting. The galleries (The Nelson Gallery, Artists in Cahoots and Cabell Gallery) and merchants (Sunday's Child, Walkabout Outfitters, Wolf and Company Antiques, and Virginia Born and Bread) will all be open, in addition to paintings and sculpture on display outside. Children will also have the opportunity to express their creativity with several activities like clay work and sidewalk art. Local restaurants will be serving up some delicious food and of course, there will be fine wines from Rockbridge vineyards!
At the Cabell Gallery, three artists will be featured: Richmond artists Curney Nuffer and Susan Dull, as well as, David Elsea, from Charles City. For an extra treat, both Curney and Susan will be doing live plein air paintings during the block party!
Every Monday leading up to the block party our blog will provide everything you need to know about each artist, so make sure to check back! Tomorrow, September 19, Curney Nuffer will be featured.
We look forward to seeing everyone on October 7 from 5-7:30!
