The wonderful Southern Appalachian Mountains have been the source of inspiration for many artists and craftspeople for generations.
This weekend, December 4 -5 -6, 2009 you can meet the artists and see where they do their thing. Learn more about the Toe River Arts Council here.
Go here to get you map of the Toe River Arts Council studio tour map. More than seventy studios are open for your exploration.
Start early. Open studio hours are only 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
Centrally located in the heart of the western North Carolina mountains, Yancey and Mitchell Counties have some of the best kept secrets in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Notice: some studios are "artisticially" located. Good walking shoes are a good idea. A navigator with an open mind for roads less travelled is good too.
