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 hickey@va.metrocast.net. 

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 hickey@va.metrocast.net.
