YORK-York County, in partnership with the Yorktown Arts Foundation and the York County Arts Commission, will host the Yorktown Art Stroll on Sunday, September 26. The free event offers visitors an opportunity to meet artists who work with a variety of media.

Yorktown Art Stroll will take place from 10am to 5pm along Riverwalk Landing. Roughly 50 regional artists will be on hand displaying their work. 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.

Yorktown Art Stroll will also include a performance by Audio Portrait, an acoustic harmony trio who covers songs from the 1960s through today. The event will be held rain or shine. For more information on the stroll, visit www.visityorktown.org.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at feedback@peninsulachronicle.com.
