Since 2003 Rapid River Magazine has helped build our customer base and put the word out for four different ventures. My customers and I have always found this magazine to be a valuable and reliable source of news and information regarding both the visual and theatrical arts.

347 Depot Street, River Arts District I enjoyed reading the interview with Pattiy in the June issue. My partner, David Frechter and I bought the building at 347 Depot Street in 2009 and have been renovating it for the last year and a half. Brian and Jenny of Nourish and Flourish lease the 2nd floor from us. I am a classical oil painter, and the building is home for my wonderful studio and salon space, open by appointment only. Please visit my website www.davidcstewart.com

Great Job! Thank you so much for your amazing coverage of the River Arts District Studio Stroll. And I loved Peter Loewer’s article on Kenilworth as a lead in to the garden tour. Many, many thanks!
