You know what makes this downtown great? It’s not the fantastic food or the wide selection of beer or even the cool music venues. What makes this place great are the people. Individuals from all walks of life can come to downtown and shed their cars and their status to be one of many; they can come here and form true community, even if it’s only for a few hours on a Friday night.
Here at Matchbox, we are proud to be a part of that community and even more proud to house the work of Noelle Burgess this evening at our office downtown (202 N. Liberty Street). Noelle will display and sell her work as part of Harrisonburg’s First Friday and we are thrilled to give her the space to showcase her immense talent. Noelle’s work centers on tearing down stereotypes and preconception by challenging the viewer to see women not as sexualized, delicate creatures but rather confident, independent individuals who are capable of any and everything.
You can see more of her work at her website, but do yourself a favor and come check out a sample of Noelle’s inspiring collection tonight beginning at 5:30pm here at Matchbox.
