In 2010 Stafford Art Glass became a member and venue on the Round The Mountain artisan network. This network, an umbrella organization for a number of counties in Southwest Virginia serves to provide a means for artists, artisans, farmers and non-franchise owned businesses tied to tourism such as bed and breakfasts and local restaurants the opportunity to market themselves in a format that lends itself to cultural toursim. In 2010 the artists and other related businesses of GIles County began gathering to organize their own artisan trail within the Round The Mountain network.

The network allows for members to be online as part of a searchable database that can create maps and trip itineraries for people wanting to visit studios and farms as well as spend nights in lodges and Bed and Breakfast establishments. Its a wonderful concept and one that the artists of Giles are working on to develop more fully.

Both the studio Stafford Art Glass as well as the Gallery are on the Round the Mountain netowrk. This will provide you the opportunity to expand your appreciation of the arts through RTM's robust database and trip planner. To begin taking a look at their site click on the icon below.....
