Art in the Foothills will be held Friday - Sunday May 6th - 8th, 2011 in The Stable at Bluemont Vineyard just outside the charming 19th century village of Bluemont, VA. The juried Art Show and Sale, in its 8th year, promises once again to be a premiere Loudoun County showcase for fine artists of all media.

A new addition to this year's show will be a Gift Market Shop of fine art products such as prints, note cards and other one of a kind items, produced by the artists of the show.Artists' demonstrations will be scheduled throughout the day Saturday and Sunday.Art Show Chairman Liz Hackney, an artist herself, says, "Come, bring the family and celebrate Art!"

All visitors will receive complimentary wine tasting tickets for Bluemont Vineyard's Tasting Room next door. Springtime views from The Stable and the Bluemont Vineyard are among the most spectacular in Western Loudoun.
