Toe River Studio Tour this weekend!
The Toe River Studio Tour is this Friday-Sunday at artist studios and galleries throughout Mitchell and Yancey counties. There’s a reception at the Toe River Arts Council (TRAC) gallery in Spruce Pine Friday evening.
Here are more details from TRAC:
We’ve changed our logo, our look, but the tour remains one of the best in the country. The whirlwind rollout culminates in the Toe River Arts Studio Tour this weekend—Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 10 PM to 5 PM each day. Over 80 artists. Six galleries. Fifty-three studios with clean floors, stocked shelves and tables, snacks to keep you going from location to location, in every medium imaginable, and all with welcoming smiles and an eagerness to share a story. Discover “who made my mug” on this journey of the arts through the mountains.
After that first day, before heading home, drive on over to the Spruce Pine Gallery at 269 Oak Avenue and raise a glass to the new look, that new logo. Revel in the evening’s excitement with the artists who make it all possible. Reception is from 5:30 to 7:30pm and free. Join artists, staff, and volunteers who make the tour the best and one of the longest continually running self-guided tours in the country as we toast the “new” Toe River Arts and the 24th year for the Studio Tour.
Clay Club meets at artist studios and other locations throughout Western North Carolina, usually on the second Wednesday of the month. All potters and ceramic artists are welcome!
