Artwork was still being unpacked and nails were being driven into the walls when New Harmony Designs Gallery opened its doors to the public last Saturday.
The new working gallery is the brainchild of co-owners Len Blackwell and Rick Gooden.
Gooden, who is also the owner of New Harmony Woodworks, said he’s had the idea for a high-end working gallery for seven or eight years. After a property became available on Main Street, Gooden discussed the business venture with Blackwell. The two men ran with the idea.
