STUDIO TOUR PARTICIPANT EXHIBIT
through JUNE 3
“MEET THE ARTIST” reception : june 1
5:30 to 7:30 pm
Every year since 1993, Toe River Arts has coordinated a studio tour that encompasses our two-county region and includes the towns of Bakersville, Burnsville, Micaville, Penland, and Spruce Pine, and all the small surrounding burgs. It’s a three-day event. This year over 100 artists in studios and galleries will open their doors, dust off their shelves, and sweep their floors in a welcome to the hundreds of visitors—on a Journey of the Arts.
And in conjunction with the tour, the Spruce Pine Gallery mounts a showcase of the artists’ work. Pieces are representative of the quality of work visitors will see June 1-3 and are arranged alphabetically around the gallery. Folks get an idea of who and what are where and can purchase it now or just plan your weekend of the tour.
And don’t forget the always fun, always full reception on the first Friday evening of the tour, June 1. From 5:30 to 7:30 pm, swing by the Spruce Pine Gallery and have a bite, lift a glass to the tour and those participating artists. It’s all free and open to the public. It’s a great time to compare notes, plan Saturday’s itinerary, meet some of the artists, and enjoy a late spring evening in the mountains.
