State College
There's no better place to start our Artisan Tour than in downtown State College. The tree-lined streets, unique storefronts, specialty stores and dining options all blend together to create the perfect place to find that perfect work of art. Take Sarah S. Harvey, whose works celebrates the environment in oil paintings, watercolors, and artists' books. And Melissa Carpenter, who works on her stoneware and porcelain wheel to create functional work that compliments both casual and formal settings. Head to College Avenue on the Penn State campus for a bite to eat (the restaurants outnumber even the galleries), then visit The HUB-Robeson Galleries where there's always a new artist being showcased. It's a lot to see, but we're just getting warmed up.
As you head northeast to Bellefonte you'll pass through the small town of Boalsburg, home of the first Memorial Day. We suggest stopping at the Mary Lee Kerr gallery and the Kathleen Frank studio to see a wonderful array of abstract sculptures and landscape oil canvases, with subjects from across Pennsylvania. Go fifteen minutes outside of Boalsburg to the town of Bellefonte. Known by the locals as the “Central Pennsylvania's Victorian Secret” this charming town is home to artists such as Ziggy Coyle, who creates amusing and fun ceramic figurines, to Susan Nicholas Gephart, the award-winning landscape painter — take home one of her colorful impressionistic pastels and oil paintings. And don't forget, in Bellefonte, be sure to check out Etcetera, Etc an artisan store featuring wearable art, accessories, etc, and handles regional and national artists.

Eat Here
Governor's Pub (Bellefonte)
Did you know that seven U.S. governors have come from Bellefonte? Probably not, but that's how this drool-worthy pub got its name. The burgers and brew are top notch, as is the “bangers in a blanket,” kielbasa in a puffs pastry with pickled red onion and Yuengling cheese sauce. A meal fit for a king. Or governor.

Sleep Here
The Barnard House (Bellefonte)
Choose from the Rose Room or the Warwick Room, and enjoy the sitting room, two outdoor porches and country gardens. This bed and breakfast is furnished with antiques, yet has the modern amenities like AC and Wi-Fi (like you'll be using that anyway). Private and perfect in every way.
