The Middleburg Arts Council and the Town of Middleburg will host the fall installment of its biannual arts celebration, Art in the Burg, on Sept. 22.
Artwork from more than 20 local and regional artists of different styles, forms and subject matter will be on display on Madison Street, next to King Street Oyster Bar, from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.
Celebrating Middleburg as an arts destination, Art in the Burg, will also feature live music from local artist, Bess Putnam, the Blue Mountain Songbird. During this celebration of the arts, visitors can connect with artists and discuss the creative process. Art-lovers also get a rare opportunity to purchase original works of art without gallery fees.
“Art in the Burg gives visitors a unique opportunity to meet a variety of local artists in one place,” said Middleburg Arts Council Chair Deb Cadenas. “The town of Middleburg provides a picturesque setting for this wonderful event.”
The Middleburg Arts Council is currently raising funds for a planned 6-foot bronze fox statue. A life-sized replica of the statue will be on display during the event. A raffle will be held during Art in the Burg to help with the project. The raffle prize, a gift basket filled with a variety of items, will include a certificate for a commissioned pet portrait.
Visit the Middleburg Arts Council hospitality tent to enter the raffle. For additional information about Art in the Burg, contact the Middleburg Town Office at 540-687-5152.
