MEANDER TIMELESS BACKROADS
October 1st & 2nd, 2022
11 am - 5 pm each day

Visit artists who have chosen the beautiful and historic Western Mass Hilltowns as a place to live and work.
Two-hundred-year-old barns, white-steepled villages and mountain vistas show off their leafy best as you wind along country roads following hills, streams and waterfalls. Our home is as beautiful as our art.
Whether you like bold abstraction or colorful depictions of the natural world, you will find inspiration on the Hilltown Artists Open Studio Tour.
