News from the VCCA's Outpost in France



Just in from Jeannette MacDougall, our resident director at the VCCA's studio center in France, news and photos from the season's first workshop, "En Plein Air: Writing and Painting in South West France," led by VCCA Fellows Buffy Morgan and Mary Page Evans. Eleven people registered, including VCCA poet Laura-Gray Street, traveling to the village of Auvillar from Maryland, Virginia, California, New York, New Hampshire and Paris. It was "incroyable" says Jeannette. Participants borrowed inspiration from the region's breathtaking landscape and the village's spirit of hospitality. Be sure to check out this fall's painting and writing workshops led by Fellows Danny Hauben and Bruce Bauman. The workshops in Auvillar are open to individuals working at all levels in their genre.
