Last weekend’s Rappahannock Association for the Arts and the Community (RAAC) ninth annual Artists of Rappahannock Studio & Gallery Tour was a great success! Proceeds from the weekend are a major source of funding for Claudia Mitchell Fund grants, such as the one given recently to Paul Reisler’s Kid Pan Alley program at Rappahannock County Elementary School. Our thanks go to the talented Rappahannock artists who have made this such a signature event.
We’d also like to acknowledge our wonderful volunteers who make the art tour possible. Although more than 35 folks helped out over the weekend, particular thanks go to the members of the planning committee who meet once a month throughout the year to plan the tour: Barbara and Matthew Black, Patti Brennan, Susan Dienelt, Charles Fortuna, Nancy Keyser, Tod Morgan, Megan Smith, Charlotte Taylor and Cathy Wolniewicz.
