This weekend’s Hopewell Valley Tour Des Arts is shaping up to be as much fun (more) than last year. The event is a 2-day self-guided tour visiting local artists’ studios with the opportunity to meet the artists and purchase locally inspired and created original pieces.

The Tour is still going on tomorrow, Sunday October 4th from 11am-4pm, and is rain or shine.

Here are some photographic highlights:

This 8th annual event continues with the support of the Hopewell Economic Development Committee, but also with sponsorship from T. Johnson Design, Morpeth Contemporary, and Highland Design Farm. Add to that the Hopewell Valley Arts Council which, this year, joins the roster by helping to promote the event in keeping with its mission “to celebrate art in the everyday.”  As founding artist Sean Mannix put it, “What a wonderful fit!”
