We in this community are doubly blessed to have such talented and different photographers. Please visit their show....it is amazing. And so much thanks to John Barnes for sharing this video.

Two entirely different artists. Both amazing. One takes a photograph and recreates and embellishes the story. The other has a more intimate and emotional commitment to the image. My opinion only. I love both works.

Both of you are right on target- they both really are so very different but equally awesome! Please come again!

Please join us Monday, Feb. 6, in Clifton Forge for the first 2023 event in the Cardinal News Speaker Series. We will be hosting an important discussion about the impact opioids have had on the workforce and role employers can play in recovery.

“Raising Lazarus” and “Dopesick” author Beth Macy will open the discussion and be joined on the panel by Ann Gardner, Alleghany County commonwealth’s attorney and drug court advocate; Ingrid Barber, executive director of the Highlands County Community Services Board; and Lee Higginbotham, CEO of Lewis Gale Alleghany Hospital.
The event will be held, starting at 7 p.m., in the Clifton Forge Historic Masonic Theatre, and is made possible with the support of the Town of Clifton Forge.

While the event is being held in Alleghany County, the impact of opioids on the workforce is felt throughout communities in Southwest and Southside Virginia. The program will allow for plenty of time for the panelists to take audience questions.

This will be the fourth event in the Cardinal News Speaker Series that was created to bring leaders and authorities together to talk about topics important to a community’s economy. We hosted Silicon Valley Congressman Ro Khanna in Blacksburg to talk about how rural communities can gain a share of the tech industry; National Association of Manufacturers President and CEO Jay Timmons in Danville to talk about advanced manufacturing expansion, and Gov. Youngkin in Bristol to talk about economic development in far Southwest.

The Speaker Series is free to attend but advanced registration is required.

Could I get enough kits for a whole class to do this for our veterans???

Hi! If it is possible, I would like to get kits for our kids to make in our kid's ministry at church.

Great idea!

Pretty ladies❤️

Donna, I miss our get-together! You look fantastic. 😊

"Congratulations to the Alleghany Highlands Arts and Crafts Center as store front of the year 2022! The windows of any business in our communities across this common wealth tell the story of what that community is all about...a visitor to any of our main streets become fascinated by what they see behind that glass cover, and many times those visitors are drawn into the business for further investigation and intrigue...we too in Clifton Forge use our store front windows to tell our story...for over 35 years, this store front has held true, quality arts and crafts, and the passion of those dedicated volunteers, who constantly display the lovely and unique items the center holds, shows it to be one of the most remarkable windows on our main street this year. " ~ Jenny Oeltjen, Clifton Forge Main Street.
Many thanks to Clifton Forge Main Street for the many things they do, and for recognizing our storefront! Also to Chuck Almarez for his wonderful photo of our building. Our volunteers are to be the ones congratulated on this award. We could not do what we do if it were not for them. ~ Connie, Honey and Nancy

A little bit of trivia about your building. It was built by the same architectural firm that built the Clifton Forge Presbyterian Church, using the same type of bricks! Congratulations on your well deserved award!
