Uptown Suites of Stuart Barn Quilt LOVEwork

This colorful LOVEwork sign is a beautiful collection of hand-painted barn quilts. Each of the barn quilts was painted by a business owner in Uptown Stuart’s historic George Building. Susan at Quilted Colors did the L, Leslie of Uptown Suites did the O, Joni at Mattie B’s did the V, and Kristen at Circles Around the Sun Yoga did the E. This LOVEwork has been a big hit with visitors and locals alike.

This LOVEwork is within walking distance of many shops and restaurants. We recommend checking out Mattie B’s, The Hatteras Pearl, The Honey Pot on Main, and Main Street Gifts for shopping. For food, we recommend Uptown Stagecoach and The Coffee Break.

The LOVEwork at Nancy’s Candy is candy-themed for a reason! Is there a better Valentine’s Day gift than chocolate? Are you looking for something more unique than a generic box of chocolates? Nancy’s Candy has you covered. From chocolate-covered pretzels to a wide selection of decadent truffles, you’ll be able to satisfy your sweety’s sweet tooth (and your own) at Nancy’s Candy.

Meadows of Dan LOVEwork

This LOVEwork sign pays tribute to some of Patrick County’s best features. The L is our ode to the Blue Ridge Parkway. The O is the water wheel at Mabry’s mill and all the other mills in the surrounding area. The V references the two wineries along the parkway. The E is for the county’s deeply rooted musical heritage.

Meadows of Dan is a wonderful area to explore. While you’re there warm up at Primitive Coffee Shop or do some shopping at Poor Farmer’s Market, Poppy’s, and Concord Corner Store. Meadows of Dan is located right off the parkway, only a few minutes away from Mabry Mill and many beautiful overlooks.

I.C. Dehart Park LOVEwork

The I.C Dehart Park LOVEwork was completed in 2022. This LOVEwork is themed after the park’s mountain biking trails. The L and the O are connected with a bike chain, creating a fun, interactive piece of art. I.C. Dehart Park has two main trail loops that give riders around thirteen miles to explore. The trails at I.C. Dehart Park are almost entirely singletrack, with moderate climbs and fun technical trail features scattered throughout the system.
