The City of Brundidge will open the doors of its downtown to football fans of both the Pike County High School Bulldogs and the Goshen High Eagles Friday night.

Several of the downtown businesses will remain open until just before the 7 p.m. kickoff at Bulldog Stadium as the Bulldogs host the Eagles in the cross-county rivalry.

Sara Dismukes, co-director of studio 116 on South Main Street, said the downtown open house is a way to welcome football fans to the friendly confines of downtown Brundidge.

“Studio 116 is excited to participate in the downtown open house,” Dismukes said. “We’ve expanded our hours to 7 p.m. and invite everyone to stop and visit with us before the game.”

Dismukes said that studio 116 is showcasing area artists and Katrina Larsen from Ozark is the featured artist for September.

“Katrina will be with us for open house Friday night,” Dismukes said. “She works in a variety of mediums but her exhibit at studio 116 is primarily 2D works that include paintings, collages, fabrics and low-relief.”

Larsen is also a writer and she incorporates poetry and other writings into her art.

“Her work is colorful and a lot of fun,” Dismukes said. “We have a variety of artwork in the gallery including handmade jewelry and we have CDs from local singers and musicians. We invite everyone to visit downtown Brundidge on game night.”
