Creating an Artisan’s Trail of Virginia in Rappahannock County celebrates and introduces our artists, artisans and agri-artisans to tourists, all supported by our bed and breakfasts, restaurants and businesses in the surrounding arms of the Blue Ridge Mountains, year round. I can’t think of a better way to bring us all together than through celebrating the creative impulse.
This calls to mind two of my favorite one liners:
It is a no brainer.
It is a win-win.
First, however, artists, agri-artisans and artisans, as well as businesses, need to become individual members of the Artisan Center of Virginia for what I feel is a nominal fee for the kind of support you will be receiving through their web-casting efforts to promote what is good and creative in Virginia.
Once we reach a count of 30 it is a go; planning for the trail can begin.
