2018 Artists Studio Tour COVER IMAGE
On May 12th and 13th 2018, the ARTISTS STUDIO TOUR was an incredible experience for an unprecendented number of visitors hailing from our local towns to far away international locales.  

There were an unbelievable 32 total local professional artists who opened their doors to the public this year.   If you would like to see the 2018 TOUR map and brochure, just CLICK HERE

Participating artists also were part of a GROUP SHOW at the gallery beginning the week prior to the TOUR and running through the final day.  There, visitors were able to preview their artwork and enjoy an opportunity to purchase. 

The TOUR and the SHOW were kicked off with a RECEPTION at the gallery where visitors were able to gather wtih the participating artists and the art-loving community to celebrate the start of another marvelous annual event.
