Weaverville Art Safari

The artists and craftspeople of the Weaverville Art Safari who call western North Carolina home choose to live and work here because they are inspired by the beautiful mountain landscape. This is a rare opportunity to interact with artists and see the process behind the development of their critically acclaimed works of art. And it's fun to buy directly from the artists.

Many artists will have special prices on seconds or older works. Works of art showcased will include pottery, handmade glass, sculpture, jewelry, furniture, paintings, drawings and fiber art. Select studios offer public demonstrations and door prizes. It's always one of the top art tours of the year in western North Carolina!

There are several stops in downtown Weaverville in one block of Main Street.
