The May Art Tour takes place this weekend, May 1-2, and will feature several scheduled guests from many of the Art Studio Tour’s beloved stops from 10 a.m. ̶ 5 p.m. on both days.
The Church Street Gallery, Studio S Pottery, Henry’s Florist, M&J Home, and the Art Center of Cannon County are all stops and will surely contribute to the fun this year. Added to the roster of to-do’s is Saturday’s pop-up event in Graffiti Alley. Hosted by Church Street Gallery, the pop-up will feature a small number of artists in the open green space near the intersection of Church and College Streets, just off the Square.
As an outside event, it will have the look of a mini-arts fair with patrons able to navigate freely through this space. They’ll be able to take in some great artwork and also experience the visual delights of Murfreesboro’s famed Graffiti Alley.
The Arts Center of Cannon County hosts artists Kay Currie and Deb Wellborn, while Henry’s Florist showcases Henry Phillips, Elizabeth Bray, and Becky Dickovitch. Studio S Pottery features Eric and Lewis Snyder along with Phyllis Razo and Suzanne LeBeau. Church Street Gallery’s pop-up includes Mark Jackson, Ginny Togrye, Mary Veazie, Rj Hadle, and the artwork of MTSU’s students and faculty from the Department of Art and Design, with MTSU sales funding student scholarships.
In addition to local creativity on display at some of Murfreesboro’s favorite shops, visitors to the May Art Tour will be able to enjoy the fresh air and convenient parking around the Square for Henry’s Florist, M & J Home, and Church Street Gallery. The Arts Center and Studio S have parking on site. Visitors are reminded that a piece of art might make the perfect Mother’s Day gift, as would something from one of the local venues.
Social distancing and the use of face masks are encouraged while attending. For further information about the May Art Tour, visit www.MayArtTour.org.
