Now in its 25th year!
The Greater Ithaca Art Trail is a collection of visual artists across Tompkins County, New York.
Artists are open year round by appointment (get in touch!), on the First Saturday of most months, and on two Open Studio weekends in mid-October. 2022 weekends are October 8,9 and October 15, 16. You’ll find the PDF showing which artists are open (32) on the Event Calendar page.
On this website you can see the work of all 47 Art Trail artists, watch some videos, and download the brochure/map (or e-mail to have one sent to you!).
The Art Trail is a wonderful addition to Tompkins County’s artistic offerings. Not only do we have a wealth of amazing artists, it’s also a beautiful area to visit, especially in October when the fall foliage is at its peak. Explorers can travel Ithaca and the rural county roads, with beautiful scenery and artist studios as their destinations.
The artists on the Trail are very diverse! There are painters, photographers, sculptors, print makers, fiber artists, ceramists, makers of fine furniture, collage artists, illustrators, mixed media artists, jewelers, digital artists, and creators of decorative functional art. The artists are thrilled to share their passion for their art, and show off what they’ve been working on.
A recent visitor on the trail said “I was blown away by the quality of the art that I saw and the really cool art studios that I visited. And I didn’t expect all the wonderful conversations I ended up having with the artists and other visitors! The Art Trail is such a unique and special event. And when you combine visiting such great artists with the beauty of the area, this is definitely going to be an annual event for me and I’ll be sure to bring heaps of friends!”
Those who are on a quest to buy fine art will find art priced from $10 to $8,000 and everything in between.
Purchasing art can be an exhilarating experience and connecting with the artist is part of that experience! (And it’s always great to buy local art for gifts!) ”
You don’t need to visit their studios to buy art. Just peruse ArtTrail.com and visit the artists’ websites. Most have worked priced, and many have work available at Etsy or with other online shopping sites.
The Greater Ithaca Art Trail is one of the many programs of the Community Arts Partnership of Tompkins County. Visit our website at www.ArtsPartner.org
