Smart bets: Weaverville Art Safari

The town of Weaverville is home to a vibrant art and craft scene that is celebrated twice annually with the Weaverville Art Safari Studio Tour. The self-guided excursion gives the community an opportunity to see north Buncombe County artists in action as they open their studios to the public. Traditional Appalachian crafts like pottery, furniture making and woodworking take center stage during the tour (there’s contemporary art on view, too), which features 40-50 local and visiting artists. This spring’s safari takes place Saturday and Sunday, April 29 and 30, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. The Friday, April 28, preview party ($10 entry) runs 6-8 p.m. at three galleries on Main Street (Miya Gallery, Mangum Pottery and Artisans on Main) and brings all the artists together with drinks, hors d’oeuvres and a silent auction.  Photo courtesy of Miya Gallery
