Art at the River in Yorktown a Success
Submitted by Jim Newtown

ARYS imageLast Sunday the 5th annual "Art at the River” art event took place at Riverwalk Landing in Yorktown. The Art at the River committee in conjunction with York County and the Yorktown Foundation played host. Original works of art ranging from wire sculptures and wearable fabric to photography and mixed media were on display by 46 local vendors during this juried art extravaganza.

The day began cloudy and overcast with rain threatening but by 3 PM the sun started to break through to the relief of the participants and viewers. Food and entertainment was also provided.

The event was dedicated in memory to Susan H. Powell whose passing June 14, 2017 left a great void in the York County regional arts and culture world. Susan started the annual "Art at the River” event in 2014 and was a tireless volunteer in promoting the arts in the Virginia Peninsula. In 2009 she was honored by the County of York as an outstanding volunteer and also received an Alli Award from the Cultural Alliance of Greater Hampton Roads.
