Ashe County Studio Tour and Gallery Crawl and Downtown West Jefferson Gallery Crawl Returns

  • Ashe County Studio Tour and Gallery Crawl and Downtown West Jefferson Gallery Crawl Returns

Ashe County Studio Tour

Summertime in the mountains – what better way to see the countryside than on a two-day Studio Tour! And to see the best Ashe County artists working in their own studios!   On August 4-5, 2018 the Ashe County Arts Council will sponsor the Ashe County Studio Tour, a two-day, self-guided, free event in which Ashe County artists open their studios to the public.

Tour participants will discover art studios located all over the county – in and around West Jefferson, Jefferson, Crumpler, Laurel Springs, Todd, Creston, Warrensville, and Lansing. Most of the studios are not usually open to the public, so this is a rare opportunity for people to see where these artists work and at select locations, to watch them as they create their art. And it doesn’t hurt that getting there takes you through some of the most beautiful mountain countryside the High Country has to offer!

When: Saturday, August 4th – Sunday 5th
Time: 9am-5pm
Ashe Arts Center: 303 School Street
