The Countryside Artisans jointly open their galleries and studios locted in historic, rural Montgomery, Howard, and Frederick Counties in Maryland for 3 art tours each year in April, October, and December, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 5pm each day.

Spend a day in the country, enjoy scenic drives between studios, stop for artisan beverages, and meet artists in the beautiful settings that inspire their work every day. Come home with a renewed sense of well-being and a wonderful piece of local, original art!

We suggest you map out 5-6 studios for each day. We all have our favorites, but be sure to add a few new ones each tour!  You’ll be pleasantly surprised!
