Each year Dogwood Arts promotes a program that brings art lovers to artist spaces. Local Art DeTour artists and makers open their studios to the public, offering insight into their creative processes, unique demonstrations, and original artworks for sale. Participating Art DeTour studios must agree to be open from 9am-5pm on November 3 and must be located in Knoxville, Maryville, Alcoa or Oak Ridge, Tennessee. As part of the program, Dogwood Arts will also host a First Friday preview party and month long exhibition of artwork created by Art DeTour artists at our Jackson Avenue Gallery. This program is sponsored each year by Home Federal Bank.
