West Edge Factory was buzzing with excitement Tuesday evening as creatives and community members gathered for Art on the Edge, one of many events happening this week for the Huntington Music and Arts Festival (HMAF).

The free event hosted a variety of vendors and performers. Jewelry, art prints, and apparel could all be found for folks to purchase.

Additionally, Abe Partridge entertained attendees with an acoustic set and community members could show off their own creative skills by participating in a collaborative banner painting project.

Katie McGuffey of Beer and Folk Art, a first time vendor with HMAF, said that they were excited to be part of the week’s events as a vendor of both Art on the Edge and for the festival this Saturday. Katie said, “Having a full week of events gives people the opportunity to show the depth and breadth of what they have to offer to Huntington, West Virginia, and Appalachia as a whole.”

Local artist and cryptid enthusiast, Buffy Six of Studio Six Creative, was set up with her gang of sexy cryptid creations bringing the energy and enthusiasm for local art that she has become known for. Buffy spoke passionately about HMAF’s unique ability to showcase a wide variety of talent in the Huntington area with so many events.

Buffy expressed how excited she was to see some of her favorite local musicians playing in the same week, Massing and Corduroy Brown. Buffy said, “Those are my boys. Anybody who knows me knows that I love local music and in particular those two artists. So, having them in one week is really awesome.” Buffy plans to attend many of the events happening this week and has a simple message for folks, “If you’re not at HMAF then you’re missing out and next year you better get your butt here.”
