Art at the Edge and The Heart of Newburgh

As you might know...I decided to have a little art event right here in my hometown, Newburgh Indiana...the place is vibrant, lively and a little beautiful little artsy mecca in Southern Indiana on the banks of the Ohio River.  Now, since I've invited you to Art at the Edge...I want to make sure we have fun things to do while you are in Newburgh...so, I'd like to introduce you to one of our merchant partners, The Heart of Newburgh.



The Heart of Newburgh has been in town since 1982, and it was first opened as a decorative paint studio where the owner Becky Geis, offered decorative painting and tole painting classes.  The place is extra special to me since it started as an art studio.  Over time, the retail part of Becky's business grew and evolved.  Now she offers jewelry, amazing primatives, she's a destination Vera Bradley store in the Midwest...and she's also know for her incredible antique finds...it's not just one building...it's two houses and an old garage turned junk pickers heaven!  Becky's eye for the simple, the elegant, and the eclectic will thrill you!  She is an amazing designer and an incredible retailer.   

 
 The Heart of Newburgh is a feast for the eyes!



There's something new and enticing at every turn!


 
 
And there's no question that Becky is an artist...do you see the pad of Strathmore water color paper tucked into the vignette below?  



 Her designing skills aren't limited to interior spaces...Her work in the garden is incredible. She has a knack for turning the ordinary into the extraordinary.  You'll find washtubs, chicken feeders, toolboxes, old teacups, wagons, pots, pans, colanders, all transformed into wonderfully whimsical planters filled with hen and chicks, black eyed susans, annuals, succulents and moss...her garden creations are inspiring!
 

 
And, The Heart of Newburgh is a picker's paradise. You're likely to find old typewriters, antique sleds, antique dishes, picture frames, vintage window frames, mason jars, antique pans, Antique pie safes, Antique Hoosiers, screen doors, there's just more than I could ever list out in this blog post.

 
So I should just let the pictures tell the story...


Believe me...I am taking some of these sleds home for my Christmas d├ęcor!
 

There are as many fun treats outside as inside!



 
If you like Vera Bradley, The Heart of Newburgh is the Vera Bradley destination in our area...

 
Becky stocks every color and style...again, this place is a feast for the eyes!



I am really pleased to let you know that The Heart of Newburgh is one of the Merchant Partners for Art at the Edge.  Throughout the weekend of October 24-26, 2014, Becky will offer special discounts and sales especially Art at the Edge attendees.  And, we're building in a little free time during Art at the Edge to let you explore Newburgh and shop a bit...

 
 
I believe that you are going the love The Heart of Newburgh...it's become my favorite hang out since I've moved back to town...


 
I hope you are thinking about coming to Newburgh to join us for a day of art at Art at the Edge...if you'd like a little more information, click on the Art at the Edge banner at the side of the page.  I hope to see you there!
