…studio tour love.


My Dear Dad is a member of the Great Falls Studios, a group of very talented artist from my home town. This weekend they will be holding a tour of these special artists’ studios through the beautiful town of Great Falls. If you have never been to Great Falls it is a wooded, lovely town that is famous for its Great Falls Park, which is a large national park offering a stunning view of the Potomac. It is a special place.


The Studio Tour is a self-guided driving tour of 44 local artists in their personal studios. You can find my dad showing at the Towlston Woods Studio (#26 on the map). Buying from local artist is a great way to support these artists as well as add stunning, hand-crafted work into your home. Here is a sampling.
