Founded in 2001 by artist Lelia Canter, the Weaverville Art Safari is a free, self-guided art studio tour that “provides the exclusive opportunity to delve into the thriving artist enclave located in Weaverville and Barnardsville.” Some 47 local artists will participate in the biannual crawl this fall, showcasing handmade artwork from a multitude of craft spheres, including pottery, jewelry, furniture, glass, sculptures, paintings, drawing, fiber arts and more. For homebodies who aren’t swayed by art demonstrations and door prizes, a selection of art pieces will be available for online auction until Nov. 2 at uglymonkeyauctions.com. Weaverville Art Safari’s participating studios will be open for the art crawl Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 1 and 2, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. weavervilleartsafari.com. Artwork by Leo Monahan
