Smart bets: Kenilworth Art Studio Tour

Asheville’s Kenilworth neighborhood, just south of downtown, houses a slew of artists in stately homes and crafty bungalows. The annual Kenilworth Art Studio Tour provides an opportunity for visitors to explore the workspaces of these artists and purchase their wares, which range from paintings to hand-shaped tiles to jewelry. Nineteen artists will be featured in 14 locations in the hilly ‘hood. “As a new artist to Asheville and new to the Kenilworth neighborhood, I was delighted to find an already established art association and studio tour,” says Ann Baird, who will showcase her handmade shibori silk scarves in punchy colors at the festival. Explore Kenilworth’s studios on Saturday and Sunday, May 27 and 28, from 10 5 p.m. Free. Landscape by Ursula Gullow
