If you enjoy shopping for original art and handcrafted wares from local NC and southeastern artists, download Locative Press’ driving tour of more than 48 art galleries, studios, markets, and museums located across the Triangle. The tour will introduce you to several art guilds and cooperatives in the area as well as monthly art walks held in different towns on designated evenings. The tour starts in Mebane and winds its way through Hillsborough, Durham, Chapel Hill, Carrboro, Pittsboro, Apex, Cary, Clayton, Rolesville, Wake Forest, and Raleigh. You will need more than one weekend to visit all of the galleries, and if you are new to the Triangle, the tour will introduce you to most of the cute small towns that circle the larger Durham and Raleigh metro areas. Tackle the whole tour over time in small bursts, or identify clusters of galleries to hit in one day. What sets our tour apart? First, we have personally visited every gallery on this tour to better describe their products to you and to take photographs inside and out that will allow you to determine if a given gallery is one you would like to visit. Our description of each gallery indicates any days it is closed, a phone number, and a Web address when available. Second, this tour emphasizes locally-owned galleries, no national chains, to ensure your money stays in the community. Download the tour and head out for a day of local culture with some friends. Note, if you download more than one tour from Locative Press, each has a unique set of shops to visit with at most one or two stores duplicated that fit into different categories.
