Avery Tour de Art Saturday
Autumn is in full swing, but area galleries are offering a different sort of fall color this Saturday, Oct. 26, with the Greater Avery Tour de Art.
“Breathtaking foliage will be provided by Mother Nature, while talented artists share their newest fall creations,” said Sally Nooney of Sally Nooney Gallery.
Those creations include pottery, metal, glass, jewelry and paintings at the 13 studios and galleries participating in the tour. “Come out this Saturday and take some fall happiness home with you,” Nooney said.
