Off The Beaten Path

Although Off The Beaten Path currently spans 3 counties with 14 stops, the heart of the tour lies in DeKalb County, TN. This year's tour included over 30 participating artists in clay, glass, paper, wood, fiber, and metals. Off The Beaten Path artist open their homes and studios to the public for 3 days during the last weekend in October. The seven stops I visited will provide a sense of the artist, their work, and the beauty one experiences while traveling to the different stops.
