The Countryside Artisans represent a select group of accomplished visual, sculptural, and textile artists living and working in both historic and rural areas of Montgomery, Howard, and Frederick Counties of Maryland.
Each studio is located within a 30 mile radius of Sugarloaf Mountain, a highlight of Montgomery County’s Agricultural Reserve, and offers an alternative to in-store shopping year round. Each April, October, and December, the Countryside Artisans jointly open their galleries and studios for special art tours.
December 4th-6th, Countryside Artisans will be holding their 2020 Holiday Tour. You can learn more about the tour and the artists at www.countrysideartisans.com. This tour gives residents a chance to support local businesses when they need it most, in a safe environment. There is no better opportunity to find the perfect unique gift for those on your holiday shopping list.
We got a sneak peak of the tour at Something Earthy Pottery Studio in Laytonsville, MD. The studio houses a gift gallery of the original hand thrown pottery of artist, Linda Phillips. The gallery also features many local artisan’s work in jewelry, paintings, photos and more. Something Earthy offers classes on the wheel and other unique programs throughout the year.
