The 2020 ‘Virtual’ Off the Beaten Path Studio Tour

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. While we are not having the tour originally scheduled for September 18, 19 & 20 due to the COVID virus, we invite you to ‘visit’ all the artists on this website and contact your favorites to inquire about purchasing their work online and possibly making an appointment for a private tour if that is suitable to the artist. All private tours must be arranged directly with the artist and must be small groups by appointment only and masks are required. We will continue to provide information on the participating artists and their new work on our Facebook page.
Be sure to check out the 3 new artists selected for the virtual 2020 Tour. They are Cindy Kopack, jeweler; Tom Weir, knife maker; and Janice Clark, leather worker.

We will be back next year for the real deal!! Mark your calendars for September 17, 18 & 19, 2021.

Next year, on September 17th, 18th & 19th, 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.
