This year, Chatham County painter, sculptor and writer Forrest Greenslade will open his Fearrington Village studios and sculpture garden for the first two weekends in December for the 20th Annual Chatham Studio Tour. His studio will be open from 10 to 5 on Saturday December 1st, Sunday December 2nd, Saturday December 8th and Sunday December 9th.

The Chatham Tour is a holiday tradition. Visitors from all around enjoy Chatham’s rural beauty and share in the creative process with the members of the Chatham Artists Guild. Fifty artists who live and create in Chatham County, will open their studios the first two weekends in December.

Art-lovers can meet Tour artists and see samplings of their works at receptions at FRANK Gallery in Chapel Hill on November 29th from 6 to 8 PM, and November 30th at Central Carolina Community College in Pittsboro from 7 to 9 PM.

Lord God Bird:
My painting exhibiting at CCCC
"I have a good inventory of new paintings and prints, and will feature my latest book Visitations: A Nature-Lover's Journal. This is a collection of my recent paintings, haiku poems and spaces for you to journal your gardening and nature experiences. Of course, you can stroll through our Forrest Dweller Sculpture Garden."

Directions: Once you arrive at Fearrington village on Rt 15/501, turn into Village Way. You can get to our Forreat Dweller Sculpture Garden by turning at Creekwood (the first left) or at Windstone (the second left). Follow the signs to number 32 at 149 Tinderwood.
