Studios Open From 10:00am to 5:00pm Each Day
Fall 2014 Tour: Saturday & Sunday, November 1-2

The Weaverville Art Safari is a free, self-guided tour of artists' home studios in the scenic area surrounding the villages of Weaverville and Barnardsville, NC. This event has been going on, each spring and fall, since April 2001. It has brought thousands of visitors to this wonderful part of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Weaverville is located just 10 minutes north of Asheville, NC — the epicenter of art, culture and vacation fun in Western North Carolina. Safari visitors are granted direct access to the home studios of a wide variety of artists who live and work in this area.

Items available for purchase during this tour come from many fine art mediums including Jewelry, Glass Art, Paintings, Garden Art, Sculpture, Pottery, Furniture, Fiber Arts, woodworking and more! As experienced art collectors will testify, a major benefit of studio tours is direct-from-the-source pricing, so think about Art Safari as a way to find unique and beautiful art treasures at reasonable prices.

We have updated this site with details re the 47 fine artists who plan to participate in our Fall 2014 event. Information re the people and businesses who sponsor our event will be updated by mid-September. Also by mid-September we’ll add a link here that allows you to download a copy of our Fall 4-color brochure — which includes a studio map. Even better, if you’ll just provide us with your email address (see the information on the left side of this page) we will automatically send a brochure to you via email as soon as it has been finalized.

When they have been printed brochures will also be available at many galleries, hotels and restaurants in the Greater Asheville area during the months of September & October — as well as at our downtown Weaverville Art Safari information Booth during Art Safari weekend.

If you are an artist who is interested in becoming a member, or you have any questions and/or comments about the Weaverville Art Safari, the Contact Us page is the place to go.

Here's hoping we'll see you in November. We promise you'll enjoy your visit.
