Blue Ridge Muse is headed downtown — downtown Floyd. On Wednesday, we agreed to lease space in The Village Green development on Main Street in Floyd and hope to open for business on Nov. 1.

Blue Ridge Muse at The Village Green will be a gallery featuring not only our work but also the photography, art and writings of other Floyd Countians. It will serve as an operating base for our photography, video and Internet services operatilons.

We will be joining a varied, and interesting collection of shops and businesses at Village Green — including a portrait studio by Jeri Rogers, a Citizens Telephone retail store, a Floyd location for Nancy’s Candy Company of Meadows of Dan and a men’s clothing store.

We’re looking forward to the new opportunity and challenge. Stay tuned for more details.
