Beautiful weather, eye-catching artworks, and thorough planning converged to make the 16th Annual Fall Art Tour weekend the most popular ever. An estimated 2000-plus art-lovers from near and far turned out to appreciate and, in many cases, purchase diverse works from the county’s many fine artists. By all measures, it was an overwhelming success with both visitors and artists celebrating the tour’s return after last year’s hiatus due to the pandemic.

The Fall Art Tour is about the rare opportunity to personally connect with and learn from so many fine artists. While their mediums, materials and skills are different, they all share the desire to show their work, answer questions, and hear your reflections. The unique spirit of the tour is fostered by the one-of-a-kind studios tucked away in lovely and surprising corners of the rolling and wooded countryside. Each year, it’s a treasure hunt on a welcoming scale that this year expanded to include 7 new studios and one new gallery!

Fall Art Tour weekend is an exceptional opportunity to view many different kinds of art and purchase those favorite pieces to continue to enjoy in your home.

Shop local this year! As the holidays approach, remember that our galleries remain open and full of beautiful fine art perfect for Holiday giving, and many of our studios are open by appointment. If you missed Fall Art Tour weekend, or didn’t purchase something you wish you had, come visit or get in touch!

Studio contact information is available on the studio pages,
and galleries on the gallery pages as well as on our interactive map.
