And you thought I was kidding about the pottery shops

Article today in the Richmond Times Dispatch(requires registration):

"Southwest Virginia sets sights on arts:
Towns hope to draw artists to the area and in turn boost tourism."

"Known for its musical traditions -- its Friday-night bluegrass jamborees at the Floyd Country Store and the annual Floydfest concerts are nationally known -- Floyd has also become a creative center, with potters and craftspeople working and showcasing their products at the 16 Hands studio and the Jacksonsville Center for the Arts."
