The Fall Art Tour is from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm both days, and takes you on a self-guided tour through our lovely villages and the beautiful Rappahannock County countryside. The Tour always begins at the Old Washington School House located at 567 Mount Salem Avenue in Washington, VA, where representative artwork from all the studios and galleries are exhibited. Although most visitors come for a day, touring the galleries and studios could easily take two days. Make your visit a weekend getaway and stay at one of our celebrated B&Bs, guest houses and inns.
