Featured art categories include oil, acrylic, and watercolor paintings; glass; drawings; photography; jewelry; pottery; fiber art; handmade soap; and woodwork.
In addition, the public can participate in the annual community painting and visit nearby art galleries including On the Hill Gallery, which will have a special display of new artists, and Gallery at York Hall, which will feature Historian Chris Bonin’s Revolutionary War artwork. Bonin will also be available for book signings of Virginia in the War of 1812 from 10am to 4pm.
