The gorgeous work of EAST artist Mike Taylor/Willow Wisp Farm Studios
For those of you who have ever bought a piece of artwork and imagined the artist creating it, or wondered how it was done, the East of Asheville Studio Tour (EAST) gives you the opportunity to find out.
As lucky residents of this beautiful area and huge supporters of our talented local artists, we have the fortune of being a sponsor of this free, self-guided tour, which takes place twice a year. The Spring tour is just around the corner: May 1-2, 2010 (10am-6pm).
EAST features artists from Black Mountain, Swannanoa and the East Asheville area, who open up their studios and welcome residents and guests to the area to visit any and all of the studios and artists. A variety of mediums are represented during the studio tour, from wood, fiber, metal and clay to jewelry, pottery, photography and painting. We’re excited to share that there are more than 30 stops on the tour this year!
You can download a map from the EAST website, or pick one up at various locations, including the Inn on Mill Creek.
