We are fast at work recruiting places for artists to crash at the end of a long day. The list below should help in our search. For information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Home Host Program - Urbanna and the surrounding area is a lovely small rural area with a community of warm and friendly folk, many of whom offer our artists a home stay experience for the week-end of the Spring art show. It will not be a full service bed and breakfast, so we cannot commit to anything other than a comfortable bedroom and a welcoming hand. Our feedback on this program: Artists and host families both enjoy this experience. Limited to Friday and/or Saturday night unless otherwise prearranged directly with the host family. Special accommodations must also be prearranged,
To request a host home or for more information contact Jeanette Sharp at email@example.com.
