Tour participants check out the work of Louis and Christine Colombarin at Cosmic Clay Studio.

Every fall, on the last full weekend in October, when the color is breathtaking and there is a certain crispness in the air, the artists of Off the Beaten Path Studio Tour in beautiful DeKalb and Cannon Counties of Middle Tennessee open their studios for a free three day open studio event. Celebrating its 20th year, the tour has grown to include 14 stops with 29 participating artists.  Artists will be demonstrating their craft mediums and offering handcrafted shopping opportunities at every stop on the tour.

This is a perfect family outing or weekend getaway!
