September 2019 When Downtown Blacksburg, Inc., held a farewell gathering in honor of Steve and Debbie Miller, owners of the beloved Mish Mish art supply store, several BRAA members were present in appreciation for the 49 years of service to Blacksburg artists and beyond. Gerri Young read the above tribute to the attendees and presented her acrylic painting below, depicting the front of the store in its last weeks of business.
