Once again, my workplace will be on the RAAC Art Tour this year.There are new prints and drawings, and I’m looking forward to showing them off. Most of the works on paper will be hanging in the studio and on the walls of our coffee shop. In addition, I’ll be pulling prints, engraving on copper plates and explaining the intaglio process to all who are interested. AND I’m really pleased to announce fellow printmaker and illustrator Kate Komarnicki will be a my guest artist here during this tour. You’ll enjoy meeting her, and seeing her new projects, too. If you miss her she has a Facebook page so you can visit her online anytime. Of course we’ll be offering fresh roasted coffee and treats in the shop. On the patio a little locally pressed apple cider for refreshment. Hopefully we’ll humor our ‘old time picking’ friends to turn out and provide some musical entertainment Saturday or Sunday.
The self guided RAAC Art tour begins at the Washington Firehall Saturday, Nov.1 and Sunday Nov.2 . Make sure to pick up a brochure. . it leads you through the beautiful countryside of Rappahannock County. You’ll be able to visit many of the studios and galleries located in the villages and tucked away in the hollows, then stop for lunch at any of our great eating places in the county.
I hope we see you the Fall. So mark you calendars. I’ve posted a little info and some of Kate’s beautiful new work below!
