The Middletown and Pleasant Valley areas of central Maryland are home to a wealth of professional artisans working within this scenic region. Currently there are 12 fine artists in our Network.

Some of our showrooms may also be open for an in-person, socially distanced view of our creative process. We are excited to share our studios in a new way this year and hope you come away with information, inspiration and one-of-a-kind gifts and treasures, handmade in Maryland.
