The arts & culture scene of the Roanoke Valley in Virginia's Blue Ridge is the subject of a new feature in ART TIMES.

The story was written by Cornelia Seckel, who visited the region in March 2016 as part of a media tour hosted by Visit Virginia's Blue Ridge. Seckel, along with other journalists from around the country, spent four days experiencing many of the unique arts & cultural highlights of Virginia's Blue Ridge.

The article features numerous local businesses, including the O. Winston Link Museum, Taubman Museum of Art, Black Dog Salvage, Blue Ridge Institute & Museum, Rocky Mount Center for the Arts, and local artisans in Botetourt County.

Seckel had high praise for the Roanoke Valley in Virginia's Blue Ridge, saying:

"This beautiful part of Virginia is filled with history, music, folklore, crafts and fine art. Virginia isn’t just for lovers— it’s for everyone."

She has also published multiple posts on her blog, Culturally Speaking Journal, about her time in Virginia's Blue Ridge.

The ART TIMES publication was founded in 1984 and describes itself as a "quarterly commentary and resource for fine and performing arts."
