Holiday shopping in the countryside! Find meaningful gifts of local, original, high-quality art and fine craft on the Countryside Artisans’ Holiday Gallery & Studio Tour, Nov 30-Dec 2 and Dec 7-9. This highly rated, free, self-guided driving tour of artist studios/galleries through scenic countryside in Montgomery, Frederick and Howard Counties is open two weekends this year.

Choose from 16 delightful destinations representing 50+ fine visual, sculptural, textile, and beverage (beer, wine, and tea) artists. Each studio/gallery is a destination in itself — located on working farms, in renovated barns and chicken coops, or in historic buildings. Many of the galleries also show other artists’ work — typically local artists.

Brochure, map and info can be found at
