If you haven’t stopped into Horse + Hero yet, here’s your written invitation. The art, craft and gallery space located at 14 Patton Ave. holds a grand opening celebration on Saturday, July 19.

Horse + Hero is the brick-and-mortar retail space of The Big Crafty, The Big Day and Big Love founders Justin Rabuck and Brandy Bourne. That being the case, the shop shares an aesthetic with those beloved indie/DIY events: local artists, unique items that make for wonderful gifts, and plenty of fodder for crafting inspiration. Horse + Hero is also “home to Short Street Cakes‘ Downtown Kiosk for fresh-daily scratch-made handpies and cupcakes,” according to the Facebook invite.

Work on display comes from local artists including Jason Krekel, Julie Armbruster,
Kreh Mellick, Andy Herod, Gabriel Shaffer, Cher Shaffer, Handcranked Letterpress, Hannah Dansie and many others. “We’re celebrating all through the day, with a wine, beer and cake reception from 7-9,” says the invite.
