Studio Producer, Kit Demirdelen shared, “The Studio Tour is one of our most anticipated events in our programming calendar. We are excited to see new artists joining every year.”
RiverArts Executive Director, Josh Suniewick, added, “The Studio Tour is such a great opportunity for local art lovers to discover new artists in their midst and support the thriving visual arts community. I am always impressed by the number of talented artists living among us and this event really shines a light on this unique aspect of the Rivertowns.”
An interactive google map, a print map, and a downloadable map (for mobile viewing or to print at home), will be provided by RiverArts, so that attendees can plan their artist studio visits. Tour maps and more information can be found at www.RiverArtsStudioTour.com. Attendees are encouraged to pre-register for the Tour on the Studio Tour website to breeze through the check-in line at each artists’ studios.
