This interactive winter community project, produced from January through June, celebrates and reflects people’s many different backgrounds and experiences. Participants are invited to collaborate in the making of a "Yarn Bombing" installation along the Danville Riverwalk, and share their COVID19 stories.  Visitors participating from home are invited to create their own assembled yarn covering, using materials you have on hand – T-shirt fabric, thread, and recycled sweaters! Knitted, crocheted and constructed fabric contributions will be added to our "WANDERLOVE: A Stitch in Time" Yarn Bomb installation in the summer months of July 4 – September 26, 2021 creating an assembled reflection of the community in bright, joyful colors.  https://www.danvillemuseum.org/events/details/ID/980 Knitting Class https://www.danvillemuseum.org/events/details/ID/980 Friday, 25 June 2021 10:00:00 EST Learn basic knitting and crocheting techniques so you can start working on your own fiber art project for our Wanderlove: A Stitch in Time.

Before this space is made available for lease, it is being offered as a gallery space featuring a solo exhibition by David A. Douglas in November 2020. The DMFAH’s Craghead Street Storefront Gallery will present two fine art exhibitions in collaboration with the museum to promote the visual arts in Danville, Virginia. This collaboration is consistent with the artistic rhythm of The 500 Block, a development project focusing on the restoration of eight antique commercial buildings.  Reverend Venable, the building’s first tenant and eventual owner, was a black minister who operated a restaurant on the ground floor and resided on the second floor. The upcoming art exhibitions will bring activity to the building, not seen in decades.  https://www.danvillemuseum.org/events/details/ID/972 Knitting Class https://www.danvillemuseum.org/events/details/ID/972 Friday, 28 May 2021 10:00:00 EST Learn basic knitting and crocheting techniques so you can start working on your own fiber art project for our Wanderlove: A Stitch in Time.

Douglas - Works at Gallery   Gallery Space at 536 Craghead Street in River District: Beginning in November 2020, the 536 Craghead Street Gallery will present two DMFAH fine arts exhibitions in Danville’s River District, to complement the Museums regular programing at its Main Street facility.  Rick Barker Properties has recently restored the Venable Building’s (c. 1899) commercial storefront at 536 Craghead Street. Before this space is made available for lease, it is being offered as a gallery space featuring a solo exhibition by David A. Douglas in November 2020. The DMFAH’s Craghead Street Storefront Gallery will present two fine art exhibitions in collaboration with the museum to promote the visual arts in Danville, Virginia. This collaboration is consistent with the artistic rhythm of The 500 Block, a development project focusing on the restoration of eight antique commercial buildings.  Reverend Venable, the building’s first tenant and eventual owner, was a black minister who operated a restaurant on the ground floor and resided on the second floor. The upcoming art exhibitions will bring activity to the building, not seen in decades.  The museum’s November opening will offer large-scale photographs by David A. Douglas. This exhibition will be curated for the unique 536 Craghead Gallery space. This show will be followed by a Spring show featuring Tim Duffy photographs. Duffy’s black and white portraits of regional blues musicians are currently displayed at The Garage- Artisian Smoked Meats, also in The 500 Block. https://www.danvillemuseum.org/events/details/ID/947 Knitting Class https://www.danvillemuseum.org/events/details/ID/947 Wednesday, 03 March 2021 10:00:00 EST Learn basic knitting and crocheting techniques so you can start working on your own fiber art project for our Wanderlove: A Stitch in Time.
