By Carolyn Van Der Jagt, president, The Arts & Cultural Council of the Rappahannock

The Fredericksburg Art Initiative is a program funded by the Fredericksburg Arts Commission and organized by The Arts & Cultural Council of the Rappahannock and Central Rappahannock Regional Library to offer a series of workshops geared toward helping local artists and art organizations nurture and promote their art businesses.

Representatives from these groups are holding a social gathering from 2:30 – 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 22, 2017, for artists and art organizations to mingle, talk, and strategize how best to formalize and pursue this program.

The event will be held at Central Rappahannock Regional Library Headquarters branch, 1201 Caroline St., Fredericksburg.

The purpose of this January event is to gather information from the local arts community about ways the Arts Commission, Arts Council, and library can further support and help promote their art businesses. We want to know which workshops would be most beneficial to the individuals and arts groups, as well as which times and days are the most convenient for the best attendance for the workshops.

Please save the date and come by the library for soup and snacks, and to add your ideas to the pot as we talk about ways to develop the art potential in our area. Working together, who knows what we can cook up!
