issues a call to artists
We invite you to take part in an exciting event this summer! The Middleburg Arts Council (MAC) is sponsoring the third annual town-wide arts celebration, Art in the Burg. Last year, over 30 artists enjoyed the beautiful day while mingling with the many visitors from the region.
Art in the Burg will be from 11 am to 5 pm, Saturday, June 20th. The event will also include music, wine tastings, and possibly plein air artists.
Tents will be placed at three locations on Washington Street (National Sporting Library & Museum, Middleburg Methodist Church and the large yard next to Sheridan MacMahon Real Estate Office).
Each location will feature tents (10x10) for artists and musicians. Each tent can host up to 2 artists demonstrating and offering their artwork for sale. The Town has a limited number of tents available. Artists may use their own tents (white tents preferred, 10x10, no tarps). We expect to be able to accommodate over 30 artists.
