Artful Weekends

Artists’ weekends offer a chance to see and shop for paintings, jewelry, woodcarvings, and other works inspired by the Virginia and Maryland countryside. These events are ideal for either a day trip or weekend getaway:

During the Artists of Rappahannock Studio and Gallery Tour on November 4 and 5, more than 25 art spaces in towns like Flint Hill, Sperryville, and “little” Washington open their doors for browsing. Located in the foothills of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains, Rappahannock County is home to dozens of bed-and-breakfasts, wineries, and restaurants for visitors who want to stay the weekend. Maps will be given out at the Fire Hall in Washington, Virginia. $10 donation.
