AUGUST 6 – 7, 2022

Tour participants will discover art studios located all over the county – in and around West Jefferson, Jefferson, Crumpler, Laurel Springs, Todd, Creston, Warrensville, and Lansing. Most of the studios are not usually open to the public, so this is a rare opportunity for people to see where these artists work and at select locations, to watch them as they create their art. And it doesn’t hurt that getting there takes you through some of the most beautiful mountain countryside the High Country has to offer!

The studio tour will be accompanied by a week-long exhibit leading up to the tour weekend at the Ashe Arts Center from August 2 – 7.  Studio tour artists will display their works in our gallery space to give visitors a preview of the kind of work that they make.  The Openeing Reception will be held on Tuesday, August 2nd, with gallery hours extended until 6:30 pm.
