Studio Tour Participant Exhibition
May 13, 2017 @ 10:30 am - June 4, 2017 @ 5:00 pm
This bi-annual exhibitÂ features the artwork of the 2017 June Toe River Studio Tour Participants. Arranged geographically, the work is displayed to make it easy to navigate from studio to studio in this two-county event, now in its 24thÂ year. With guide and pencil in hand, visitors can choose their route for the tour weekend or purchase a piece of art they just canâ€™t wait to have.
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. This yearâ€™s tour participating artists and galleries haveÂ a sampling of pieces that are available in their studio on display at the Spruce Pine Gallery.
A gala reception is held the first Friday of the Studio Tour, June 2, from 5:30 to 7:30pm at the Spruce Pine TRAC Gallery. The reception is free and open to the public to view the work, meet the artists, and share a bite andÂ toast TRAC’sÂ 24th year of open studio tours.
