The Toe River Studio Tour is perhaps the largest and the longest running studio tour in the country; you will find craftspeople and artists in nearly every medium, many tops in their field and several new-to-the-tour participants. This year’s tour boasts 112 artists in 68 studios, plus 7 galleries, all welcoming seeking a Journey of the Arts.
FREE, self-guided, this adventure will lead you to some unique places situated between Mt. Mitchell and Roan Mountain. Visitors travel through valleys, past streams, across rivers, over hilltops, and experience breathtaking mountain vistas as they those many out-of-the-way studios. Meet the artists, see where they create and where they live.
TRAC sponsors a Meet-The-Artist reception at their Spruce Pine Gallery on Friday evening after the tour closes for the day. A sampling of participants will be on display geographically so one can plan a route for the rest of their journey. For a sneak peak at the tour, the exhibition is on display at the gallery beginning May 12. And if you won’t be able to do the tour, you can purchase those “can’t live without” or “this would be perfect for” pieces before. There will be food and drink and lots of artists to get to know. It’s free and open to the public. Just stop on by and say hello to staff, artists, and the many volunteers who make it all possible.

Join us for our ninth annual Handmade Market!
The Marshall Handmade Market happens every autumn on the Saturday before Thanksgiving at Marshall High Studios in Marshall, NC, from 10am to 5pm. The studios are housed in a 1920's two story brick high school, which is nestled on a little island in the French Broad River. On show day the spacious, sunny auditorium is filled with some of the best makers in the region, and the resident artists open the doors of their classrooms-turned-studios to visitors. We'll have delicious Thai food from the Bun Intended food truck,sweet and savory pastries from OWL Bakery, a musician or two, and plenty of seating on the generous back deck. Our idyllic island setting, the charming historic high school and fantastic artists all combine to make the Marshall Handmade Market a favorite among holiday markets for locals and visitors.
