Asheboro, NC - The Randolph Arts Guild's 2013 Randolph Ramble is set to kick-off Friday night with a reception at the Exchange in Asheboro, NC. The weekend's open studio tour is set to feature over 35 talented artists from in and around Randolph County, and the Friday night reception designed to give the public a chance to meet and get a preview of the artwork of the participating artists.

The Randolph Ramble, a self-guided tour of local artist’s studios, from formal working spaces to garage workshops to the kitchen table, will spotlight the diverse selection of art and imaginative environments of artists in the Randolph County area. The participating artists will display their work either in their own studios or at group locations. Visitors will be able to view their original creations, possibly watch a demonstration by the artist, and take advantage of studio pricing on a fine selection of exquisite art pieces.

The opening reception will be from 6pm - 8pm on Friday, October 18 at the Exchange 204 S. Fayetteville St. in Asheboro, NC.  The participating artists will be on hand exhibiting a sampling of what will be available through the tour.  The event is free and the public is encouraged to attend.

The tour promotes the distinctive talent of each artist, and in turn underlines the creativity within our broader community. This year’s participants include the following artists and studios:

The Randolph Ramble is sponsored by the Liberty Artisan and Crafts Gallery, the Co-op of Seagrove Potters, Brightside Gallery, Bistro 42, Isabella’s Goodies, The Heart of North Carolina Visitors Bureau, the Randolph Arts Guild, the Northwest Randolph County Arts Council, and the participating artists.
