About the Artist:
Steve Flora, who lives in downtown Harrisonburg, has enjoyed drawing cartoons and super heroes since childhood days, especially while sitting in church listening to his father preach. His formal art training consists of a few classes in high school and college, as well as lessons from local artist Judith Ligon, and his mother, Ann, a watercolor artist. Subject matter ranges from flowers to figure studies, but his love of the fluidity of surfing is a recurring theme in his works.

We are also hosting a book signing this month at our First Friday at the Depot event.
We have a special treat at this months First Friday Art Opening. Russ Eanes will join our event and host a book signing for his newly released book “The Walk of a Lifetime.”
About the book:
Trekking 500 miles on the ancient Camino de Santiago was not just an item for Russ Eanes to check off his bucket list. It was a journey he had dreamed of taking for decades. At age 61, with his children grown, he was too young to retire but wise enough to know that he needed to reorient the hurried pace of his life. He left his work and took a sabbatical to “reset” himself and the first step was to head to the Camino. With everything he needed in a 16-pound pack and, equipped with a set of seven simple principles, he took off from St. Jean Pied de Port, France, to walk, as pilgrims have for twelve centuries, across Spain, to realize his dream. It was the Walk of a Lifetime. In a style that is part personal memoir and part travel memoir, he combines history, spirituality, coffee, culture and humor into an engaging journey of personal rediscovery.
