Ramble on ... in the spring
The Studio Ramble traditionally arrived as trees started to turn red, orange and yellow. This year, the event comes as the trees bud and the lilacs and bulbs bloom.
Organizers invite people to experience art, music, chocolate and wine in the beautiful green Mississippi River valley.
"We felt that it would be more exciting to be at the beginning of the art season rather than at the end," Maggie Paynter said. She is one of the participating artists.
