The Toe River Studio Tour is perhaps the largest and the longest running studio tour in the country; you will find craftspeople and artists in nearly every medium, many tops in their field and several new-to-the-tour participants.
FREE, self-guided, this adventure will lead you to some unique places situated between Mt. Mitchell and Roan Mountain. Meet the artists, see where they create and where they live.
TRAC sponsors a Meet-The-Artist reception at their Spruce Pine Gallery on Friday evening after the tour closes for the day. A sampling of participant is on display geographically so one can plan a route for the rest of their journey. For a sneak peak at the tour, the exhibition will go up on November 19.
A copy of the Tour Guide can be picked up at the TRAC Galleries in Spruce Pine and Burnsville, at other local galleries, or downloaded here.
