Head to the Ozarks, Off the Beaten Path

Posted By on Thu, Sep 13, 2012 at 1:25 PM


The three-day Off the Beaten Path tour of 24 Ozark artists' studios in Mountain View, Calico Rock, Pineville and Fox starts tomorrow. Start your tour by going to the OBP website, where you'll see profiles of some of the participating artists, including fiber artists Shawn Hoefer and Jeanette Larson of Laffing Horse Farm and Crafts, polymer clay and jewelry artist Chere Taylor, well-known ceramicist Joe Bruhin, woodworker Paul Gillam and more. Since the tour takes you to the studios, you'll see lots of artists demonstrating how they do what they do.

A map is in the online book; not sure if it's downloadable. But there are sure to be maps in Mountain View, the jumping off point for the tour, or perhaps Fox, the closest town if you're coming from Central Arkansas. Hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m Sunday. A great thing to do on a weekend that's is beginning to look like fall.
