For 18 years a group of fine and functional artists in and around Mountain View, Arkansas, have welcomed visitors into their private working spaces on one special weekend in September.  Artists and visitors alike look forward to this unique event and return year after year.

We are busy preparing for the “Off the Beaten Path” Studio Tour this fall. We are hopeful that we will be able to welcome you into our private studios on September 18th, 19th & 20th, 2020. If there are any changes necessary we will update this website and our Facebook page. We are pleased to welcome 3 new artists to this year’s Tour. They are Cindy Kopack, jeweler; Tom Weir, knife maker; and Janice Clark, leather worker. Check out work by all the participating artists on these pages. We will be updating and adding new photos over the next few months.

We invite you to come for a day or for the weekend to tour our studios located “off the beaten path” within a 30 mile radius of the Historic Stone County Courthouse Square in Mountain View, Arkansas. Once again you will be able to step inside the private studios of painters, potters, weavers, jewelers and more to see up-close and personal how and where the art is created on this free self-guided driving tour in the scenic Ozark Mountains.
