Cancellation Notice

With regret, Countryside Artisans will be canceling the 2020 Spring Tour.

We look forward to the time when we will see you again. We are hopeful there will be an opportunity to reschedule this event in the summer. Please check back for any updates. Until then, take care of yourselves, your family and each other.

To keep you inspired in the meantime, browse our Artisans webpage for links to your favorite Countryside Artisan websites and online stores. We also welcome a new member to the Countryside Artisans, Earlywood Design & Services, an artisan in Woodbine that converts local logs into beautiful live edge slabs and furniture.

We feel fortunate as artists to continue to be creative in our own spaces. This slowdown time is a gift to get deeper into so many of the art projects we want to do. As soon as we enter the garden or the studio, the anxiety and fear lessens. Our creative work offers hope for this troubled world. 

Best wishes, The Countryside Artisans

The Countryside Artisans of Maryland represents a selected group of accomplished visual, sculptural, and textile artists working in oil, pastel, watercolor, pencil, ceramics, porcelain, glass, enamel, stone, wood, yarn, textiles, photography, tea, hops, and grapes. The Countryside Artisans jointly open their galleries and studios located in historic, rural Montgomery, Howard, and Frederick Counties in Maryland for 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!

Learn about the Montgomery County Agricultural Reserve; meet artist Tina Thieme Brown.
