Dogwood Art DeTour

April 12 & 13, 2014

 

Dogwood Art De Tour is a two-day event where local artists welcome the public into their actual studio space to experience the working creative process as the artist demonstrates the making of a work of art. When it comes to art, the creative process can be just as interesting as the finished product. Dogwood Art DeTour provides an intimate look into local artists’ working studios. Visitors are invited to watch as the artists produce some of East Tennessee’s spectacular works of art.

Take some time to enjoy a spring day with the arts. A variety of artistic media will be on display showcasing the diverse talents that are present in this area. All studios will have completed works of art for sale!
