Last weekend's 4 Towns 4 Art event gave residents from throughout South Jersey a chance to take a peek into their neighbors' home studios and see the surroundings from which they take their inspiration.

The 18-stop, four-town tour offered an inside look at the creative spaces of painters, jewelry-makers, photographers and potters, like Eric Wolff of Collingswood.

Alexandra Withers of Haddon Township remarked that she enjoyed seeing the studio spaces as much as the work itself. She was particularly taken with the pastels of Jocelynn Tice.

"You'll be surprised at how many artists are tucked away in this four-town group," Withers said.

Elliott's mom, Laura Klink, for whom the arts crawl was a first, said that aside from the chance to see the work, 4 Towns 4 Art was a good excuse to make acquaintances.

"We just like to get to know our neighbors, [go] walking through town and playing with the kids," she said.
