The Toe River Arts Studio Tour is a free, self-guided tour of artists’ studios typically held on the first weekends of June and December in North Carolina’s scenic Mitchell and Yancey counties. In response to the pandemic, this popular event went virtual from Monday, November 23 through Sunday, December 27, 2020. 

For the last 28 years, the Toe River Arts Studio Tour has been a way for the community to experience the richness and diversity of the landscape and the visual arts of the Blue Ridge Mountains, just forty minutes northeast of Asheville, NC. This year the event was entirely online, making the studios and artwork accessible from the region and beyond.

Our small but mighty staff loves supporting creatives by facilitating opportunities for community members to engage with arts of all media. We shine the spotlight on what’s happening in the arts so that everyone in the region and beyond has an opportunity to see, make, learn, and engage. At Toe River Arts we not only strive to help people find the work of talented makers, but also educate people about the value of shopping small and from our local creative community. Thank you for making this Virtual Studio Tour a success!
