Art in the Park 2016 Cancelled

It's official!

While the sun is predicted come out tomorrow (partly sunny), the grounds will be soggy; some artist’s sites will be muddy; wind will be strong (about 18 mph, with gusts up to 25-30), and some weather predictions still give us a 40% chance of scattered showers.  

We are disappointed but feel it is a good call. 

Loyal fans and art lovers please consider arranging a private or group studio tour in Fearrington Village. Many of our artists' studios are open by appointment.  Samples of our work and contact info for our member artists can be viewed at

Stay dry!
