The Tour features local artists and artisans with works in painting, photography, pottery & ceramics, stained-glass, jewelry and more and is a great way for locals and out of town visitors to meet the artists, view and purchase original works of art and learn more about the processes of art-making, as well as a great social, professional and networking opportunity for local artists.
