Our Little Bit of Heaven

Planning a visit to Fearrington Village?

Artist Studios of Fearrington Village is a community of visual artists who have come together to support one another, promote our art, open our studios and share our vision of Fearrington Village as an arts destination. We represent the full range of artistic experience, from those who have made art their lifetime career to newcomers exploring the inroads of their visual talents. Our media of choice is varied. We are painters, woodworkers, sculptors, print makers…

Join us, Saturday,  April 11, (10-5pm) and Sunday April 12, (12-5pm) for our First Annual Artist Studios at Fearrington Village Open Studio Tour, where the resident artists are inspired and thrilled to call Fearrington Village home. Many of our studios are also open by appointment.

Enjoy the Fearrington Village gardens; stop in at McIntyre’s Books, lunch at The Belted Goat, a delightful deli; have Sunday Brunch or dinner at The Fearrington Granary (reservations are not required but are recommended) and discover a little bit of heaven.

Blog Gone Crazy

Dear Fearrington Artists blog followers,

Our blog had a hiccup this afternoon... while I was out... it sent you an old from Sept. 18, 2013.  "Art in Village Autumn 2013".  Did Blogger forget to send this post out more than a year ago and suddenly got caught up?    Did Blogger time travel... returning to 2013? 

I am holding my breath --my time-tested cure for hiccups-- hoping that you will continue to follow the Fearrington Artists Blog and share our anticipation and excitement for the  upcoming Artist Studios at Fearrington Village's First Annual Studio Tour. April 11 and 12.  

The last post was created on Saturday, Jan. 31, 2015. It appear as it should in my email inbox and hopefully in yours... but if not here is the link.

Blog: Fearrington Artists 
Watch for Tour updates, images and inside the studio stories. We hope you will like us on Facebook (Artist-Studios-at-Fearrington-Village) and post your comments.

Planning on taking the tour?  We would love to hear from you.
Thank you for following our community of artists.
