Owner description: We had a great run for 5 years, but have been overtaken by wanderlust so have taken to the trails ourselves. The many great artists and artisans that we supported are still producing beautiful items that are available in our area. You can always call me if you'd like. Thank you so much for all the wonderful days we served the art loving public. Marcy McCann

What a wonderful surprise! I had picked out a piece of turned wood to buy that was on display and for sale at the Hi Neighbor restaurant. Our server said that she would call the shop owner, Marcy, where it was consigned so that she could come to the restaurant for me to pay for the piece. Marcy met me at Hi Neighbor, took the piece to wrap at her shop, and we stopped by to pick it up (not even a block away).
Marcy was welcoming and hospitable, told us about the various artists and history of the buildings (the main shop was a small colonial home where the downstairs and summer kitchen have been turned into sale displays for Shenandoah artists, artisans, and craftsmen; the upstairs of both buildings are residences). Grandchildren ages 7 and 9 were with us and she INVITED them to touch various pieces in the shops and told them about how different things were made.
Prices for many pieces were quite reasonable so I not only left with a lovely handmade lathe-turned wood bowl but also a very nice memory of going to Shenandoah Valley Artworks and talking with Marcy. I look forward to going back again when I'm visiting the area.

If you travel through the Shenandoah Valley and you love art, be sure to stop in and see the friendly folks at Shenandoah Valley Artworks. What used to be called King Street Artworks is a gem of a gallery in Strasburg, hosting live music and exhibiting some of the most breathtaking hand-crafted items in the local area - there is something here for almost everyone to appreciate! The owner is an instant friend to all who enter, and she displays with pride and enthusiasm many exquisite wood and pottery items for the kitchen and elsewhere, stained glass items, paintings and photographs of and inspired by the local area, auditory delights of the area and much, MUCH more! It is definitely worth the trip!

Not only does the gallery have exquisite local art and crafts, but Marci's welcoming manner makes the stop all the more worthwhile. She clearly loves her space and her excitement is contagious. Seeing the encuastic wax paintings alone is worth the visit. The wooden bowls are not only beautiful but well priced. WhenMarci gave us a tour of her personal space we ubderstood she was someone special and we were blessed to spend part of Valentine's Day with her.

Thank you so much for such a nice review. We recently tallied the Zipcodes from our receipts and found that we've had visitors from 27 states and at least 6 countries. That means that we get to meet new people and enjoy new topics of conversation each day. So for us, being here for tourists and locals means each day is interesting and exciting. What better place to work than surrounded by art and nice people. Thanks again for stopping in.

We discovered the beautiful town of Strasburg as we traveled around the Shenandoah Valley. The downtown is alive with art in windows and clearly there's a love of and commitment to art here. As we strolled King Street downtown, we stopped at the Shenandoah Valley Artworks. The shop is full of a variety of art - paintings, pottery, jewelry, etc. - by local artists. The people were friendly and welcoming - a delightful and memorable experience!
