Supervisor Mallek Recognized at State Artisan Conference
8/16/2012

Board of Supervisors chair Ann Mallek was recently recognized by the Artisans Center of Virginia (ACV) at their statewide artisan conference for her support and encouragement of the growth and sustainability of the artisan movement in Virginia. The event was an opportunity to acknowledge the commitment to excellence that exists within Virginia and to recognize how this unique creative community enriches and contributes to the quality of life and the economic strength of our state.

Mallek has served on the Artisan Center of Virginia Monticello Artisan Trail management team since its inception. An advocate for arts and agriculture, Mallek recognized the collaborative benefits ACV's Artisan Trail Network program offered to the artisans, agri-artisans and entrepreneurial businesses in her magisterial district. A champion for economic vitality, her dedication to enhancing Albemarle’s rural economy, agriculture and tourism in sustainable ways is unwavering.

Since 1983 Mallek and her husband Leo have managed the family farm in Earlysville which is an active trail site on the Monticello Artisan Trail and produces grass-fed beef and pesticide-free vegetables.

The Artisans Center of Virginia develops and implements systems and strategies to improve economic outcomes for Virginia artisans and their communities while assisting them in promoting their local artisan culture. Find out more at: http://artisanscenterofvirginia.org/index.php
