Artists Wknd 2019

Artists' Weekend

In 2008, Liz Delahoussaye decided it was time to share the beauty of Highland County with other visual artists.  Thus began the Highland County Artists’ Weekend.   Each year since then, with the exception of a two-year hiatus thanks to Covid, artists from across Virginia and nearby states have come to Highland County to paint and to exchange perspectives on painting in the open air.  A highlight of the weekend has been the Wet-Paint Show and Sale on the last day of the gathering.

 

“We are looking forward to welcoming artists back to the County the last full weekend in June (June 24-26),” said Liz Delahoussaye.  She is working with Donna Bedwell, President of the Highland County Arts Council, to make the 12th Artists’ Weekend a memorial anniversary.

 

The event not only fulfills the Arts Council’s goal of making Highland County an ‘arts destination’, but it also makes a significant contribution to the economic development of the County.
