Watercolor Dreams Gallery Opens at Huntington’s Heritage Station

Special to HuntingtonNews.Net
Huntington, WV - The Greater Huntington Parks and Recreation District announced the opening of a new tenant at Heritage Station today. Watercolor Dreams Gallery, a watercolor studio and gallery will have its GRAND OPENING this Friday June 24 from 12-8 p.m. in Shop 11.  There will be refreshments and special sales during that time. 

Owned by local artists, Bruce and Lillianne Bowersock, Watercolor Dreams Gallery will share space with Peake Office Solutions, the local authorized Xerox Agency. “We’re very excited to move into Heritage Station. We love the energy and excitement that surrounds the area now,” Ms. Bowersock said. “We’ve been blessed to have had our work shown in galleries around the region but it is literally a dream come true to now have our own gallery space,” she added.

The couple’s work has been exhibited at Tamarack in Beckley, WV, the Renaissance Art Gallery, the Huntington Museum of Art and The Upstairs Gallery, Ashland KY.  Their work is also on display in the windows and showroom of George H. Wright’s in downtown Huntington, Dr. Carolyn Clark’s office, Huntington Physical Therapy.  The Red Caboose at Heritage Station also sells a popular line of Ms. Bowersock’s prints, note cards, coasters and magnets called “Cats in the Window.”

“I’m thrilled that Lil and Bruce are joining me in my shop at Heritage Station,” said Beth Marcum, owner of Peake Office Solutions, a Xerox Agency.  “As an agency, providing Xerox products, I understand how the power of color can evoke emotions and help individuals and companies tell their stories. Sharing space with people who use color to create beautiful works of art is an ideal opportunity for us,” she said.

Watercolor Dreams Gallery joins several other new tenants at Huntington’s revitalized Heritage Station: Bottle and Wedge, specialty beer and cheese store; Sadler & Smith furniture studio and Event Solutions; River and Rail Bakery, an artisan bakery; Jameson Cigars, a locally owned cigar store, scheduled to open in May; Morrison Studios a studio and gallery specializing in custom, local, and statewide photography and videography. Together, these businesses join a group of other dynamic businesses, including Adell’s Antiques, All About You Hair & Nail, Bodyworks Spa and Gallery, Crumpets and Tea, Custom Framing by Jenks, the Red Caboose and Sweet.

The Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Greater Huntington Parks and Recreation District announced the redevelopment plan in the summer 2010. The plan calls for Heritage Station to ultimately become an artisan retail center where local residents and guests can shop locally-owned shops, galleries and boutiques and be entertained by local artists and performers.
