See­ing art in pud­dles

Rappahannock News - - FROM PAGE ONE -

De­spite the wet week­end, more than one thou­sand art lovers from across the mid-At­lantic flocked to Rap­pa­han­nock County for RAAC’s 13th An­nual Artists of Rap­pa­han­nock Stu­dio & Gallery Tour. For the open­ing night re­cep­tion on Fri­day, the old Wash­ing­ton School was trans­formed into an im­pres­sive art gallery that would ri­val any found in big cities. Over 150 pieces of art cre­ated by lo­cal artists, in­clud­ing two large works by Rap­pa­han­nock el­e­men­tary and high school stu­dents — the first time ever that the two pub­lic schools par­tic­i­pated in the tour — were on dis­play for the open­ing re­cep­tion. The tour, which fea­tured sev­eral dozen stu­dios and gal­leries, was deemed a tremen­dous suc­cess, ben­e­fit­ting lo­cal artists, busi­nesses and the en­tire com­mu­nity.
