What a beautiful time of year to visit Rappahannock county! It’s decked out with the colors of autumn, compliments of Mother Nature. For the weekend of Nov 1st & 2nd the Rappahannock artisans, galleries and shops have quite a spread planned. The studios are open and craftsmen will demonstrate their particular skills. My printmaking studio is also open. A fellow printmaker /illustrator Kate Komarnicki will have several pieces on display for sale. There’s mulled cider and biscuits for munching on, as you make your way through the artists tour. Be sure to find our well stocked sampling bar with fresh roasted coffees to taste or pick up a bag or two.
Wandering back to my studio you may catch me inking a plate, rolling out the damp paper.. or maybe pulling a plate through my older Griffin etching press.
Our talented musicians friends will be ‘old time picking’ from 2 p.m to 5 p.m on Saturday. Dennis Fairbrother and HIS friends are skilled in the art of playing the old time tunes on the banjo, fiddle and guitar. We hope you’ll join us.
