Posted on May 30, 2018 in Visitors

All roads lead to local artists on the Hawk Mountain Arts Tour and Sale on Saturday, June 2 from 9 am to 5 pm. Now in its 13th year, the tour has grown to include more than 40 artists and businesses with the addition of a satellite location hosted by the Hamburg Arts Alliance.

Stops include several local businesses hosting artists who will display a variety of crafts, such as pottery, wood and metal sculptures, jewelry, and fine art paintings. The free driving tour takes place within a 25-mile radius of scenic Albany Township, and a printable map of the stops can be found at or the Arts Tour Facebook page.

“The route is beautiful, and the event is the perfect chance to embrace this local community and see a wide variety of art and nearby talent,” says Gigi Romano, who helps organize the annual event.

She recommends that participants choose the artists that interest them the most and visit those first. The route is numbered, but the tour is self-guided. “The route is completely up to you; prioritize and only do as much as you can. This year, be sure to check out the new addition of the Hamburg Arts Alliance satellite location with almost 20 artists!”

In addition to the displays, visitors will be able to purchase pieces and products at most stops. Multiple host locations will be open for business or provide food and drinks for sale or tasting. This unique event exposes visitors to the amazing local culture and talent of Berks County, and allows for a day of exploration and art appreciation.
