Welcome to our Virtual Exhibitions

 

The Rappahannock Association for Arts and Community is pleased to present a series of monthly virtual exhibitions from May through October, 2020.

The Fall Art Tour is going virtual!

One of the premier events in Virginia, the Fall Art Tour has been going strong for 16 years. Typically held on the first full weekend in November, this year’s Tour will be different due to Covid-17 and necessary social distancing.

This year’s Tour has evolved from in-person to the virtual Rappahannock Arts Expo, which will launch in mid-November. Similar to the 2-dimensional virtual exhibitions hosted here this summer, the Arts Expo features work from our local artists and galleries with information to inquire and purchase. Many artists and galleries will be shipping work to collectors; others are open by appointment for viewing and pick up. Please contact the individual artists for their plans.

 Many of our award-winning artists are nationally and internationally recognized and creative works on the Tour include painting, sculpture, pottery, glass, forged ironwork, jewelry, textiles and photography. Please support our artists this year by shopping virtually, and we look forward to seeing you in 2021!

The Fall Art Tour is brought to you by the Rappahannock Association for Arts and Community, the flagship nonprofit organization founded in 1982 which offers art programs in multiple disciplines to the Rappahannock and surrounding communities.

“A Great Find”

What I love about the art tour is the element of surprise…you never know what each new location will bring. Each home, studio and gallery is uniquely inspirational. And the diversity of styles, mediums and forms of artistic expression is truly amazing.

“Fabulous Scenery & Incredible Art”

I look forward to the art tour every year.  Not only do you get to experience and observe incredible artworks of all kinds made by artists throughout the Rappahannock countryside, you also get to step into the artists’ personal studios, talk to them about their methods and inspiration, and gain a unique and special perspective on their work.  It makes for an remarkable and memorable time, elevated further by the spectacular landscape and fall colors.

“A Wonderful experience”

I have attended the Art Tour for the past four years. I look forward to visiting the inspiring studios of artists that show their work each year but also discovering new artists as the tour continues to grow. I especially enjoy sharing it with my father and seeing him entranced by all the different types of art and engaged in conversations with the artists on concepts and their process.
