The Town of Middleburg and its Arts Council will hold the spring installment of the bi-annual Art in the Burg from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. next Saturday, May 18 on Madison Street.

The event will feature artwork from more than 17 local and regional artists of different styles, forms and subject matter. Visitors are invited to the event to not only enjoy and purchase art, but also to enjoy live music from the folk rock/Americana duo, The Glimpses, and shop and dine in Middleburg’s historic downtown area.

A raffle will be held during the event to help the Middleburg Arts Council in its efforts to fund the sculpting of a $30,000 6-foot bronze fox statue that will be installed in a central location in town. The raffle prize will be a gift basket filled with local items and a parking pass for the Virginia Fall Races.

“Visitors to Art in the Burg will have an opportunity to meet a variety of local artists in one place,” stated Middleburg Arts Council Chair Deb Cadenas. “The town of Middleburg provides a picturesque setting for this wonderful event.”
