2019 12th Annual Artists Studio Tour
Last year the eleventh annual Artists Studio Tour brought art lovers to eighteen different studio locations to see more than 38 artists’ work on two different weekends. Dates for this year's tour are April 27 & 28 and May 4 & 5. NOTE: This year the organizers are dividing the city at University Avenue to better evenly distribute the locations. April 27 & 28 will be all artists WEST of University (Westside & Upper Valley) and May 4 & 5 will be for those EAST of University Avenue (Downtown, Central, Northeast, Eastside & Mission Valley.) Hours will be 10-5 on Saturday and noon-5 on Sunday.
Art lovers browse the private studios, meet the artists and shop for fine art. Admission is free and refreshments will be served at each studio.
The tour is sponsored by Hal Marcus Gallery and The El Paso Scene. Randy Limbird, from the Scene, had this to say; "Walking into an artist's studio can be a lot of fun. You see what inspires them, their views from the window, and a variety of their work. When people buy art, they're establishing a relationship with the artists. They're not just buying a painting, they're buying a story. So, why not see where the artists live and work? It makes it more appealing."
The entry deadline for artists is March 5, 2019, so please respond as soon as possible. Participation in the El Paso Artists Studio Tour is restricted to working artists in any medium of the visual arts (painting, sculpture, ceramics, etc.).
