Art Centers, Galleries and Studios Charlottesville and its nearby surroundings has venues large and small for you to view handcrafted work as well as interact directly with the artisans. Two outstanding areas, centrally located, are the pedestrian Downtown Mall, which is populated with several galleries, and the McGuffey Art Center - three stories filled with independent artist studios, open to the public for several hours each week and having at least 2 large shows up each month. If you enjoy a little meandering, checking out the scenery, discovering the town while art shopping, there are two artisan studio tours - one with a set yearly schedule and another that is generally available year round. The studios involved are both in town and further out in the surrounding counties, but you can always enjoy the vineyards as you explore! Further references for finding the Art in Charlottesville: Left: Night shopping on the Downtown Mall with marquee lighting provided by the historic Paramount Theater.
