Artist Studio Tour – July 28, 2018
10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
We are getting ready to launch our second annual Artist Studio Tour. Last year we featured twelve local artists at their home studios. The event was a tremendous success. Artists met the folks who love their work, sold new work and began some very significant relationships. It was a community experience, traveling from one studio to the next in the hope of seeing as many studios as possible and meet the artists who work in them. Art takes on a different perspective when you see it being made and can talk with its creator. All of the participating artists were located within a few miles of downtown Sisters. We were able to supply visitors with maps to help guide them to the artist studios. We also produced and staged road signs to help with navigation and mark the routes to the studios. Of course, if you are an artist, you already know about the importance of meeting the folks who love your art..
If you are interested in participating in the tour this year, you still have time. Between now and the last day of May, 2018. All you have to do is click here and enroll yourself. Of course, it is important that your studio be within 15 miles of Sisters, Oregon.
There are costs to organize, advertise, and promote these kinds of events, so there is an enrollment fee of $75.00 for SAA Members and $125.00 for non-SAA members. Signing up as a non-member will automatically make you a member of SAA for one year. What you get for this fee, in addition to participating in the event, is an Artists web page for the event. You also get an Artist webpage on the main website because you will be a member artist for a year. We will also be featuring you and your studio on our Facebook page one or more times leading up to the Artist Studio Tour event.
Watch for Road Signs
Artist Studio Tour road signs will mark the way to all studio locations. They will be in place throughout the day on July 28, 2018.
