In addition to our two packed floors of antiques, vintage, collectibles, and more in the Staunton Antiques Center, our upper level Artisans Loft offers a stunning look into the local art and artisan world in our region.
With 2,000 square feet of display area, we showcase an array of artists working in all kinds of mediums to produce unique, edgy, and engaging contemporary pieces — all of them for sale.
The Artisans Loft presents four juried and curated shows a year on a quarterly basis. Artists submit works and our board juries submissions for final selection.
When each new show opens, we host a Friday evening opening. Our openings are lively affairs including local live music, food, occasional theatricals, and merriment of all sorts. See our blog/events page for details on the current and next shows.
Artists work in any medium, including but not limited to paper, illustration, photography, painting, collage, mixed media, glass, ceramic, metal, jewelry, stone, sculpture, wire, textiles, wood, and more.
Most of our artists are Virginia-based, but on occasion they come from outside the region. Works are usually one-of-a-kind but depending on a medium that lends itself to duplicates (jewelry, pottery sets, prints, etc.) some represent concurrent works.
Come on out seven days a week to see this unique hub of artistic activity with its remarkable insight into the artists and artisans of the Shenandoah Valley, Staunton, and Virginia.
