Spend a day in the country enjoying an art shopping experience! Join us on the Countryside Artisans Spring Gallery & Studio Tour, a free, self-guided driving tour of artist studios/galleries through scenic Montgomery, Frederick and Howard Counties. Choose from 18 delightful destinations representing 50+ fine visual, sculptural, textile, and beverage (beer, wine, and tea) artists. The studios/galleries are located on working farms, in renovated barns and chicken coops, or in historic buildings. Many of the galleries also show other artists’ work -- typically local artists. Make a day of it, meet the artists, enjoy the countryside, and bring home a wonderful piece of original art or fine craft. Find a printable map or google map directions at www.countrysideartisans.com.
Find inspired stone sculpture in the Sculpture Garden and Gallery at Alden Farms. A must see on the Countryside Artisans Tour. Our husky, Nala, and rescue, Beenie, will escort you through the gardens to help you decide which one to bring home.
