As the gold and crimson leaves swirl through the mountains, get in your car and take a self-guided tour to see the creative work of artists that dwell there. Visitors will find one-of-a-kind handcrafted work from painters, potters, jewelers, photographers plus art made from wood, fiber and glass. They will also have a story to tell about meeting the artist and some of the scenery they enjoyed along the way.

To join in the fun, just follow the signs to 30 locations in Towns, Union, Habersham, Rabun, and White counties in Georgia and Clay County, NC. Map brochures are available at welcome centers around the state and participating vendors in each county. The route is online at artstour.org.
