Nonprofit prepares to open art gallery in Appomattox

The old hardware store on the corner of Church and Harrell Streets in Appomattox is being converted into an art gallery.

An art gallery is in the works for Appomattox.

Many people have inquired what is happening to the old hardware store on the corner of Church and Harrell Streets. The Institute for Theonomic Reformation under the leadership of Paul Michael Raymond is renovating the property to put in an art gallery.

The gallery will occupy the front of the building. All the work is being funded by donations; no money is coming from the town or other government, Raymond explained. He also noted that the nonprofit is not putting a lien on the property, either. So far, relying solely on donations is going well, he reported.
