(MURFREESBORO) It's beginning to look alot like Christmas, especially this Saturday and Sunday from 10:00AM-5:00PM each day with the 26th Annual Art Studio Tour sponsored by the Stones River Craft Association. There are 9 studios and admission is free. For a map, visit www.ArtStudioTour.org.
A verse in the Bible says, "A prophet is not without honor except in his own town." This has proven true in each year's tour, because many of these local artists have national and world acclaim. Some have works on display in museums around the world, others have works that are a permanent part of classic architecture in major cities, and others are in the Smithsonian and White House collections.
Whether you are a long time collector or new to appreciating fine craft, you will find some of the Stones River area's finest forged iron, pottery, stained glass, weaving, wood work, fine jewelry and functional home accessories.
Established in 1993, the Annual Art Studio Tour has given visitors a glimpse into the working studios of the local artisans and craftsmen. Mastering various elements, the artists produce one-of-a-kind treasures for you to bring home.
Each year, the talent grows and develops, just like the city we live in. We invite you to visit the studios to see how and where their artwork is designed and made. The tour is a free community event. Join the adventure finding the artists and studios that you never knew were there.
