Art on the Half Shell canceled this year
After 12 years as Urbanna’s springtime festival, the Art on the Half Shell fine arts festival has been canceled for 2013, Ginny Sawkins told the Urbanna Town Council on Monday.
Sawkins, who was instrumental in starting the fine arts festival, said volunteers who coordinated the festival were not able to do it this year.
Sawkins encouraged the town to be “proactive” in hosting seasonal events.
Council member Joe Heyman said the town council would encourage events. “Leadership is key,” he said. “There are a lot of great ideas, but there is only so much leadership to go around.”
Mayor Don Richwine indicated the art festival would return in 2014.
