TOE RIVER ARTS STUDIO TOUR PARTICIPANT EXHIBIT
NOVEMBER 19 – DECEMBER 31
RECEPTION DECEMBER 2
Twice a year, the Toe River Arts Council presents a two-county self-guided studio tour. Participants are invited to showcase a sampling of the work they will have in their studios over the weekend. The work is displayed geographically. Visitors can map their journey to the arts or select that one item (or two) from an artist they didn’t get to. And if they can’t “do” the tour, they can choose a piece before or after the tour from their favorite artists.
And every year, on the evening of the first day of the tour, TRAC hosts a huge reception at its Spruce Pine Gallery. Visitors meander back or drive in from out of town to start their adventure in a festive holiday atmosphere. Artists splash a bit of water on their faces, shut their studio doors for the evening, and join those intrepid travelers and fellow artists in a toast to the holiday tour. A welcoming spirit fills the room with fun, food, friends and families, and it’s all free.
