Friends whose opinion I value greatly have talked to me recently about our decision to close our studio at The Jacksonville Center and, as a result of their urgings, we have decided to remain.

The decision to close the studio, which never really reached what we felt was its full potential, was a difficult one. We were one of the original tenants at the Center and it has been part of our lives since coming to Floyd in 2004. My mother was a volunteer at the time and she brought the center to my attention when we were looking for gallery locations.

So the studio will remain open for the time being while we explore ways to refocus it and its mission. We also plan to expand our gallery offerings to other cities where we still have business interests.

So, when you’re in the area, drop by and say hello. We’re located in The Jacksonville Center, 220 Parkway LN S., Floyd, VA.
