Mark your Calendar for the Toe River Arts Studio Tour – June 3-5, 2022

Both internationally known and emerging artists in every medium have settled into what has become one of the finest communities of both traditional and contemporary craft artists in the country.
Twice a year, these artists open their studios and invite the public to spend a few minutes to get to know them, to view their work, to learn how they went from idea to something the visitor can hold.
Participating artists and galleries have a sampling of pieces that are available in their studio on display at the Spruce Pine Toe River Arts Gallery.

May 14-June 5, 2022 – 
Reception Friday, June 3, 5:30-7:30

We’re excited to announce our move to a new Yancey County location!

We have been working with Lynn Austin and Yancey County to secure our new home!

We are so excited about this partnership and want to thank Lynn, Yancey County, and the Commissioners for believing in our vision and willingness to renovate the space to showcase the work of our talented artist community.

A special Thank You to Jamie with the Yancey County Economic Development Commission for his support!

Please visit the New Burnsville project for occasional project updates and please visit one of our Saturday Pop Up shops! We will release this schedule soon.
We appreciate the support of our community of artists and look forward to better showcasing their work.
We’re excited to see you soon in our new space!
