Fall Artisan Trail
One of the most anticipated events on the Arts in McNairy calendar just got a lot better! The fall Artisan Trail tour is expanding to include several new artisan stops and the Adamsville rural heritage festival. It will be a great time to pick up unique, one of a kind, Christmas gifts, learn about the folk and fine art traditions of McNairy County and meet some of the best artists and artisans in Southwest Tennessee.
The biannual AiM Artisan Trail tour is an open invitation to visit with the artists and artisans in their shops and studios. Participants can watch the artists plying their trade, learn about their artistic process first hand and purchase their work. First time visitors will enjoy meeting the artists and seeing them in action while those who have participated in the past will find plenty of new things to excite their curiosity.
Participating artisans will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 15th. Visitors may start at any of the studios listed below and call on as many artists as their time and interests will allow. Updated maps will be available at all locations on the tour and there are no admission fees. Online maps will also be available for download on this blog, one week prior to the event.
