New on the tour is Cedar Hill Studios, a renovated gallery featuring regional artists and antiques in a spacious setting.  Cedar Hill is celebrating their grand opening at 196 North Main St. in Waynesville.

Twigs and Leaves will be hosting painter Jack Stern.  Native to Colorado, Stern, an oil painter, was inspired by his grandmother at an early age.  Stern’s Western North Carolina “naturescapes” can be seen year round in the gallery. Known for his water and sky masterpieces, Stern will be demonstrating his techniques at Friday’s event and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday.  During Art After Dark, visitors to Twigs and Leaves can also enjoy piano and guitar music by Jason Watford from Dothan, Alabama, as well as refreshments.  Twigs and Leaves Gallery is located at 98 North Main Street in Waynesville.

The Village Framer will present a photography exhibit by Jason Cox, featuring photographs taken while working to assist hurricane victims in Oklahoma. Jason has returned from a mission trip with his church, The Rock Church, in Asheville and offers a glimpse of the suffering and a message of hope through his work.  The exhibit will also be a fundraiser to benefit tornado victims. The Village Farmer is located at 56 North Main St., in Waynesville.
