An Abingdon Welcome

The Double Line Painters of the Blue Ridge had a warm welcome from the people in Abingdon, Virginia at the Arts Depot last week.  Artists Judy Lochbrunner, Linda Schaar, Sue Furrow, Bonnie Mason and Mary Anne Meador are showing their art, Life Along Route 11, until June 11 at the Art Depot.

In a previous blog, I shared some plans for hanging the 46 pieces of art for this show, which was a site where we had not hung work.  Our prior planning worked perfectly in speeding the placement of art, and along with 2 husbands who helped with the hammering of nails to hang in this gallery, we had the entire show up in just about 2 hours.  Thanks to the guys for their help!

Abingdon is an interesting place to visit with interesting shops, restaurants, hiking trails near by and, of course, the Barter Theater.
This is a great place for a day trip or longer stay .  If you are there during the show, stop by the Arts Depot for a view of "Life Along Route 11".
