Unique offerings by local artisans

Stoney Run Artisans is pleased to welcome visitors to our shop in Downtown McGaheysville. You will find beautiful offerings from talented artists.  Many are on hand to meet personally, even to sign purchased work.  We hope you will enjoy interacting with these talented individuals and discussing the insight of their product.  You will find some of your favorite artists here, and some "soon to be" favorites!


Our gallery is located in the Stonewall Bank Building (1920 - 1933), across from the McGaheysville Post Office.  Inside you will find the original bank vault from the 1920s  and a working public telephone booth made of oak.  


In addition to the artisans, Highland Designs of Richmond, Virginia, has space inside the building. Beautiful furniture, decor pieces, lamps, antiques, and other unique items are offered.


We accept VISA, MasterCard, Square, Discover, American Express, and good ol' cash.

The space at Stoney Run Artisans is large and welcoming, providing visitors with the perfect atmosphere to stroll through and enjoy all we have to offer.


We believe individuals should have access to art and culture in their daily lives. It's our goal to provide a medium between art enthusiasts and the artists themselves.


Our Gallery is the perfect blend of old and new, and we hope you enjoy visiting this historic building.




Stoney Run is the creek that runs through this part of the Shenandoah Valley, and can be enjoyed just to the right of the Gallery.
