Thumbs up: Eleven artist studios will be inviting the public to stop in this weekend as part of the ninth annual Carroll County Artists' Studio Tour. The self-guided tour, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. today and Sunday, features stops throughout Carroll County, from Taneytown to Woodbine, each hosting between one and three artists selling everything from fine art to stoneware to toys and jewelry. During the tour, artists will describe their processes, show exhibitions of their work in various states of completion as well as sell original pieces. Because the tour is self-guided, guests can visit the sites in any order, or skip several stops entirely. For more information, visit www.ccartists.com.
