Toe River Arts Studio Tour

The Toe River Arts Studio Tour, now in its 28th year, has become a favorite among residents and visitors of Western North Carolina. Twice a year Toe River Artists open their homes to family, friends, and complete strangers. Visit with artists from every media including artists working in clay, stone, jewelry, wood, metal, and mixed media. The variety and quality of the work on the tour is unmatched. In a time when buying mass-produced items online is as easy as clicking a button, visitors take comfort in knowing they are supporting artists and the local economy by buying directly from the maker.

Visitors of the Toe River Arts Studio Tour will enjoy the natural beauty of the Western North Carolina mountains as they meet artists in their inspirational environments. Art lovers will meet nationally renowned and emerging professional artists and craftspeople in their studios, see their workspaces, and purchase their work. Guests have the opportunity to ask questions about the creative process and experience live demonstrations. Experiencing and interacting with the artistic process makes for an unforgettable experience! 

The free Toe River Arts Studio Tour takes place the first weekend in June and December from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Mitchell and Yancey counties. The Toe River Arts Studio Tour has an accompanying exhibition at 269 Oak Avenue, Spruce Pine during the tour and the month leading up to it. The June Studio Tour will not take place this year, but the December tour is still scheduled for the first weekend in December.
