The M22 Art2Art Tour returns for a fourth year this Saturday & Sunday (October 9 & 10, 2021). This year the event will be held at four venues, and of course there are numerous restaurants, wineries and small shops along the way for you to visit while viewing the fall foliage.
The event is sponsored by the Suttons Bay Art Festival committee who brings us the very successful summer art fair in Suttons Bay every year and who also abides by a generous mission to donate back to the regional community funds to help support and expand the regional art market.
