Come and see live artist studios in Brown County, Nashville, Indiana.
Working artists will welcome visitors throughout the month of October. Juried artisans, a true representation of the arts in Brown County, will share a special glimpse into the lives of working artists and craftsmen. Don’t miss the T.C. Steele State Historic Site while you’re here.
The Back Roads of Brown County Studio Tour is an event designed to showcase the arts and crafts created in the present-day “Art Colony of the Midwest.”
Watch artwork take shape before your eyes, with artists and craftsmen demonstrating daily. Talk with artists and explore the spaces that inspire them. At some studios, you might even be able to take part in the creation in prepared activities. Educational and designed to broaden public understanding of the arts, the tour is an art celebration for the whole family.
This is a unique opportunity to meet artists doing what they love and to purchase artwork directly from those who made it. Collectors will relish the selection of new work made available especially for this event.
All studios are open Wednesday – Saturday 10:30am – 5:30pm daily in October. Many studios are open Sunday 10:30 am – 5:30 pm. Check the artist listing for hours for each studio.
Most studios take credit card payments, but some do not, often because of limited internet service in backroads art studios. So bring your checkbook or some extra cash along, just in case!
