An artist whose work has hung in one of the world’s most prestigious museums, The Louvre in Paris, will be among the more than 100 watercolorists, oil painters, photographers, ceramists, sculptors, carvers, weavers and other artists from 11 states who will show their work May 30-31 in Middlesex.

The festival will be open from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, May 30, and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday, May 31 on the grounds of 17th-century “Hewick Plantation” on Old Virginia Street, just a half mile west of Urbanna.

Musical groups ranging from rock to blues and pop to shanty will provide other art forms over the two days.

Admission is free, as is off-road parking. Food and drinks will be on sale and village shops are a short trolley ride away.

More information on the show and its artists is at http://www.artsinthemiddle.com.
