When The Creekmore Law Firm moved to its new location on Main Street in 2011, we recognized a unique opportunity to not only expand our business practice but to become a part of Blacksburg’s Creative Village. After a few months of gathering hanging materials, pulling art contacts together, creating a library space for Harding Avenue Elementary’s art, and becoming a Merchant Partner with the Blacksburg Regional Art Association, we debuted our first art exhibit in December of 2011 to a gathering of nearly 150 clients and friends. The interest and support was overwhelming. We ran with the idea, forming our not-for-profit gallery in 2012 and outfitted ourselves with a trés nouveau French shark logo. We continued our art parties, now dubbed Whet Your Palette receptions, and increased our regional online presence by joining Round the Mountain.
Since the popularity of that first art party, our walls have become an ever-changing canvas to our local artists’ imaginations–adults and children alike–and our halls have been filled by an ever-changing mix of friends, neighbors, clients and art patrons from all around. We are dedicated to providing such a space as long as the creativity flows.
