  • Southwest Virginia Artisans are Home at Heartwood

    by Casey | Posted on June 28th, 2011

    Heartwood: Southwest Virginia's Artisan Gateway

    Heartwood: Southwest Virginia's Artisan Gateway

    Today is the grand opening of the long-awaited Heartwood Center in Abingdon. It’s Southwest Virginia’s Artisan Gateway, meaning visitors will be enticed to explore the local music, crafts, food, and overall culture with a stop at this state-of-the-art facility.

    Expect to browse and purchase one-of-a-kind gifts, as well as see videos and interactive exhibits about regional artisans (such as those associated with ‘Round the Mountain) and musicians from The Crooked Road. From time to time these artisans and musicians will be on-hand to speak with visitors about their work.

    Take a load off at the coffee and wine bar; you’ll want to soak a spell in this place.

    About Heartwood:Heartwood Logo

    • The term ‘heartwood’ refers to the oldest, hardest wood in the center of a tree – the core. Southwest Virginia’s core includes the local music, art, food and drink.
    • Heartwood includes the works of 200+ Southwest Virginia artisans.
    • The facility is 28,000 square feet and includes barn-like architecture.
    • Leaning on the ‘core’ thought, the offices for both ‘Round the Mountain and The Crooked Road are housed at Heartwood, as is the Abingdon Tourism Office, making it the center of community outreach.
    • Performance space has been included in the design for concert-hosting.
    • An on-site restaurant offers local food, as well as local wines and ciders.
    • Visit daily from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.; just off I-81 near Virginia Highlands Community College in Abingdon, VA.
