Arts in the Middle Fine Arts Festival

A Juried Fine Arts Show on the grounds of a stately 17th century plantation, Arts in the Middle offers two days of  entertainment in Virginia's River Realm with  fine arts and fine crafts, music and local foods a stroll away from the area's most charming waterfront village.  

Hewick Plantation is a restored site of landscape and architectural beauty ~ an exquisite 17th century jewel of a building on expansive manicured grounds and a grand drive bordered by majestic oak trees.  

In the heart of Virginia's river country, the event is a short stroll from the popular waterfront village of Urbanna, a drive up the road to the village of Deltaville where you meet up with the Chesapeake Bay, and an easy reach from Richmond, Williamsburg, the Northern Neck, Northern Virginia, and Washington DC.  Visitors can make a day of it or spend a weekend enjoying the arts and all that the River Realm country has to offer. 

Artists’ tents line the shaded gravel entrance drive providing a lovely stroll under the shade of the majestic oak trees lining the path.   Music and local food will be available in the large hospitality tent during the show on both Saturday and Sunday.                                                                                                                                                                        Parking is close and convenient with complimentary golf cart transportation for visitors needing assistance.

Trollies will run between Hewick Plantation and Urbanna.


Parking is limited in town so if you plan to visit Urbanna’s terrific shops and restaurants while you are here we suggest the trolley which runs a  continuous loop from Urbanna to BethPage, just next door to Hewick Plantation,  through Urbanna and back from 10 am to 9 pm.  Fare is 50 cents one way.  It will stop on Old Virginia Street at the head of the gravel path at Old Virginia Street.  For safety reasons the trolley only stops on the route from Urbanna to BethPage, so be sure to catch it on its way out of town.
