DEN­TON — A self-guided tour of artists and ar­ti­sans around Caro­line County will take place Fri­day, Nov. 23 and Satur­day Nov. 24.

While there are no set di­rec­tions for the tour,

about a dozen artist stu­dios, gal­leries and shops will be fea­tured. The lo­ca­tions span through­out the county and in­clude lo­ca­tions in Rid­g­ley, Fed­er­als­burg and Pre­ston.

The artist to be fea­tured on the tour are: Jan Baker, Lisa Marin, Tim Moore, John Liszewski, Su­san Neal, Lisa May, Nancy Thomas, Irene Aspell, Vickie Liske, Dawn Malosh, Ian Wat­son, and Jack Seal­man. Lo­cal art in­stal­la­tions in The Foundry, Nich’s Cof­fee Shop and more also will be fea­tured.

For Moore, an ar­ti­san who works with wood­turn­ing who is fea­tured on the tour, the event will be a great place to meet other artists and in­ter­act with the com­mu­nity.

“I think the Foundry and the Caro­line County arts is very valu­able for the folks like me and ev­ery­body else,” Moore said. “It gives us a place where we can dis­play our works and meet and see other artists.”

Moore said the event was great for lo­cal ex­po­sure.

“It al­lows any­one to show their art and gets your name out and gets you ex­posed to the com­mu­nity,” Moore said.

Caro­line County Coun­cil of Arts Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor Ma­rina Dow­dall said the event hopes to be­come an an­nual one, af­ter its in­cep­tion this year.

“It’s a pleas­ant, laid­back ex­pe­ri­ence of a driv­ing tour of the county and stop­ping to meet artists and en­gag­ing with them,” Dow­dall said. “The artists are re­ally ex­cited, we hope we get a good turnout.”

Dow­dall said the event will not only ben­e­fit artists by pro­vid­ing them face time with cus­tomers, but also for cus­tomers to dis­cover some­thing new about the county.

“They’ll have the op­por­tu­nity to find some­thing unique and spe­cial,” Dow­dall said. “That’s our mis­sion, is to sup­port the artists and to get them in front of the pub­lic as much as pos­si­ble.”
