You’ve most likely already received your Summer issue of The Piedmont Virginian or maybe you’ve seen it on newsstands while passing through your local book store or retail outlet. No matter where you’ve seen it, the same conclusion has been made that this is truly one of the most beautiful issues that we have published.
Our Summer issue’s cover is graced with 2 beautiful performers from the very popular Castleton Festival that has taken place in Rappahannock County for the past 3 years (Joyce El-Khoury seated left and Denyce Graves seated right). The other beautiful model (center) is none other than Dietlinde Turban-Maazel, a well known German actress and the lovely wife of Maestro Lorin Maazel. Oh, and lets not forget “Didi” the little piglet.
In this issue you will find articles on Virginia Wine Blogging; Raw Milk; Abstract Art/Painters; Recipe’s; a photo essay on the mountain residents who were uprooted from their homes to make way for Shenandoah National Park; and much more! The Summer issue also, once again, features the Castleton Festival program — filled with each performances information, times, actors/actresses, and a bit of history on the festival itself.
We would once again like to thank all of you for your continued support and amazing feedback. We enjoy bringing to life and reporting on this beautiful region — whether you live here or just visit here, everyone knows how special this place truly is. We hope you enjoy our Summer issue — all feedback is welcomed!
Please be sure to keep an eye out for our Fall 2011 issue (which will also be our 4th Anniversary issue!) due out on newsstands mid September. The Fall issue will include a special section on Arts in the Piedmont. The northern Piedmont of Virginia is home to some of the most creative artists and dynamic artistic ventures in the country, and yet there exists no single source of information about what’s happening artistically here….until now! We are delighted to be working on this piece to promote all independent artists, art galleries, museums, art organizations, music, dance, theatre & film in our region. The guide will be featured in our Fall issue, however we will print over run copies of the guide itself which will be distributed through out the Piedmont. If you are interested in being included in this guide (or if you are interested in advertising) please let us know so that we can provide you with more info (firstname.lastname@example.org or 540-349-2951). Otherwise — pick up a copy in September and support your local “artists”!
Once again, thank you so much for your support of The Piedmont Virginian and all of the wonderful things that we are trying to support and promote.
