Allegany Artisans Studio Tour

36 artisans will be participating at 28 studio locations for 2022. While most of our Artisans remain on the tour long term, there are always changes and new artisans. Send us an email (alleganyartisans@yahoo.com) to join our mailing list. (Note: The artisans listed have been updated for 2022. Maps and other pages are still being updated.)

  • We are located within the picturesque Allegany plateau. Savor the beauty of the Genesee River’s fall landscape as you travel between studios.

  • Talk with the artisans and shop in their homes and studios amid their private inspirations.

  • See artisans at work with grace and skill born of experience.

  • Call any member throughout the year for unique gifts and special commissions.

  • Enjoy shopping the old fashioned way – knowing the hands that formed your art treasure.

  • Contact us before October with your name and address and we’ll mail a full color brochure showing everyone’s work and map location. Of course, you may find your way to any studio and pick up a brochure there.

You can Meet The Artisans, get Google Maps to Our Studios, find out more About the Allegany Artisans and if you can’t find what you are looking for you may always Contact Us for more information.

During the Studio Tour, you will find every one of us in our studios ready to meet you and to offer demonstrations, exhibits and refreshments. For other dates please contact the individual artisan. Some studios have regular hours and others will meet you by appointment or at shows.

Many art and craft shows have been cancelled in the past year. This seriously affects the income of the artisans who work full time or who supplement their income with their art or craft. We are very appreciative of our customers who like to own or give as gifts locally made art or crafts.

Please contact an individual artist to find the best way to purchase their work. Their information can be found on their listing on the ‘Artist By Media’ link above. Many artisans have websites, Etsy pages. or other ways to see more of their work. Follow us on Facebook for updated information.

Ridgewalk and Run

Alma Hill Alma Hill Road, Alma

For 30 years, on a picturesque horse farm located in a rural valley below Western New York’s highest elevation point, hundreds of outdoor enthusiasts gather each third weekend of October for the annual RidgeWalk & Run. Exhilarated from a morning of refreshing exercise, with memorable aromas of forest ferns and falling leaves still fresh in mind, participants relax and enjoy some hot food and festive entertainment at the UR/Jones Memorial Hospital Finish Line Arena. Having grown to offer 5K and 10K trail runs, as well as a varied pallet of walking distances, RidgeWalk & Run annually draws participants from across New York State and beyond. The stunningly beautiful trails that weave participants along linked parcels of privately owned land, enable each RidgeWalk and Run participant to enjoy a truly “one of a kind” event. RidgeWalk and Run’s varied pallet of walking and running distances appeal to every fitness level and remains the area’s premier family affordable outdoor fall event. From the time the busses leave for the trailheads to when participants’ bibs are checked at the finish line, the enduring enthusiasm of our many RW&R volunteers is evident and keeps many dedicated participants returning to Allegany County each year and who make UR/Jones Memorial’s largest wellness fundraiser possible.
