Welcome to the Neuse River Artists Studio Tour

The tour is a free annual event, taking place the second weekend of May. Featuring dozens of talented artists in and around New Bern, NC, the tour is a self-guided three day event, kicking off with a downtown opening coinciding with New Bern's Art Walk, and then continuing Saturday and Sunday as art lovers can visit artists working in their studios and displaying in partnering hub centers around town.

The tour is a project of Community Artists Gallery & Studios, inc., other area artist organizations, corporate sponsors, and personal donors. It is a 100% non-profit event, designed to introduce the wonderful creative people that New Bern has to offer to the public. The opportunity to visit with artists outside of a gallery setting is a great experience, as you get to meet with the artists in the spaces that they create and find out personally the inspiration that drives them.
