Twice a year, 40+ artists of the Weaverville Art Safari invite you to visit studios and galleries in the town of Weaverville and the surrounding rural areas. Weaverville, located just a few minutes north of Asheville in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, offers visitors a unique small-town atmosphere with several street side cafes and eateries to compliment the many galleries and studios.
Many of the artists and craftspeople of the Safari who call Western North Carolina home choose to live and work here because they are inspired by the beauty of the world renowned landscape. This exclusive weekend event is an opportunity to interact with artists and see the process behind the development of their critically acclaimed works of art.
The Art Safari provides a chance to wind through the backroads and main streets of Weaverville, Alexander and Barnardsville on a self-guided driving tour. Artists are on hand to talk about their creative processes and exhibit their latest creations. Works of art showcased during the event include pottery, handmade glass, sculpture, jewelry, furniture, paintings, drawings and fiber art. Select studios offer public demonstrations and door prizes. Studios are open from 10 AM to 6 PM on Saturday and Sunday.
Weaverville Art Safari brochures containing maps and artist information are available at Asheville-area galleries, restaurants and shops near tour times.
