The Artists of Rappahannock normally hold the highly popular annual Fall Art Tour on the first full weekend of November. The 2020 tour has been reimagined due to COVID-19, evolving from in-person to the virtual Rappahannock Arts Expo launched in mid-November. Each artist or gallery displays up to 12 pieces of art as well as contact info and a description of their artistic approach. Some artists and galleries will ship works to collectors; others will be open by appointment for viewing and pick up.
Typically, over 100 artists, in more than 40 studios and galleries, participate in the tour. Many of these award-winning artists are nationally and internationally recognized. Creative works include paintings, sculptures, pottery, glass, forged ironwork, jewelry, textiles and photography. (The traditional tour is expected to return in 2021.)
Rappahannock Association for Arts and Community or RAAC, began a series of monthly Virtual Art Exhibitions featuring studio artists and galleries. These Zoom events are also recorded for later viewing. For more information and to sign up visit Virtual Art Exhibits.
