Visiting Artisan Series

Thanh -- February 15th, 2009

Yesterday I had the pleasure of seeing the work of Jon Gehman at the Hardesty-Higgins House. Harrisonburg Tourism’s calendar says that Jon Gehman specializes ” in pen and ink drawings of old barns, race cars, weird bugs (real and imagined) and anything else that would appeal to your creative nature.” He also does architectual renderings and models, historical and technical illustrations, museam installations, and large scale murals.

Some pictures of Jon Gehman and his displays at Hardesty-Higgins are posted on the hburgnews flickr pool.

This is the third year of The Visiting Artisan Series. It started this year on January 3 and runs every weekend through February 28, featuring a different artist each week. Next week Feb. 21-22, Heather Hansen of Pink Daisy Pottery will be at the Hardesty-Higgins House. All of these events are free. See also this DNR article.

    Thanks for adding those photos!I think it’s neat the H-H house hosts these artisan events, it seems like a good venue for that.

    It is a great venue to host these artisan events.

    I wish I had paid more attention to this series before yesterday so that I would have gone to visit a few of the previous artisans who have displayed/ demonstrated at the Hardesty-Higgins House. I was reminded of this weekend’s artist because Jon Gehman emailed me that he’d be there. He had done work on the Purcell Park Stream Restoration and the Farmers Market Pavilion renderings (I worked with him on the former).

    Jon Gehman’s artwork can also be seen ‘full-time’ at The Frame Factory and Gallery, during regular business hours.
