We’ve joined First Fridays of the Valley family! Join us on the First Friday of every month for art made by local artists and refreshments from local vendors.

Join us for our first event on February 3rd for the Colorscapes art opening by our very own team member, Martha Putney! Come and experience color in new ways and enjoy local cider from Old Hill Cider and refreshments.

Artist Statement: Martha was born and raised in the Shenandoah Valley.  She received a Bachelor’s degree in Studio Art from the University of Mary Washington in 2015.  Her head is filled with colors when she meets people, reads a book, and thinks about time.  Because of this, she is endlessly fascinated in how color has a language of its own for telling stories about people, places, emotions, and moments in time.  She aims to capture these stories by subtle and bold nuances of colors and shapes.
