50 Miles of Art and fun this weekend in Missouri

Art Lovers will get a chance to enjoy a wide variety of styles and talents this weekend during the 50 miles of Art event.

The event is a showcase for the "working artist" that live along a 50 mile stretch of highway 79 in Northeast Missouri.

Visitors will get the chance to see artists work with such things as glass, pewter and other types of mediums.

Steve Ayers Pottery, one of the 13 studios and galleries on the tour, has shelves full of locally crafted, and even custom pottery.

"It's always fun to talk about, and the ware itself is much better than something you can buy from one of the large chains," Production Potter Fred Carelli explained.

The chance to grab some one-of-a-kind gifts, and keep money local, drew Janice Lamberson to Hannibal Saturday afternoon.

"It's unique, it's different, it's not like the other stores in other places and they're always very helpful," Janice Lamberson said.

The 50 miles of Art Fall Studio and Gallery tour will continue Sunday from about 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
