Art in The Friendly City Food Co-Op






Today I took three large pastel paintings, and four smaller oil paintings in the the Harrisonburg 
Friendly City Food Co-Op, of which I am a member/owner along with many other people in our area who are interested in having a place to buy local, and better food.  Although the Co-Op isn't a "normal" place for hanging art, it works out well for people with artwork that relates to the store.  The co-op opened only months ago, and is still growing into its space.  My paintings are food/farm related, with the three large pastels are of close-ups of veggies.  The other smaller oils include a pig, a chicken, some cows and a great ancient old tractor (my personal favorite).  So, if you're in the 'burg, stop by the Friendly City Food Co-Op, get some great food, meet some great people, and enjoy my artwork!

What an interesting venture. I hope it continues to be successful. The only place I've come across with a similar venture was at Timaru in New Zealand. The front of the guy's shop was selling locally grown vegetables at the back he was showing his paintings. Great idea.

How wonderful! That is such a nice way to spruce up the work area. I should hang a piece in my dreary little cublicle...
