To help celebrate autumn in the mountains, the Creede Arts Council is sponsoring the 7th Annual Silver Thread Studio Tour on Saturday, September 11th from 10:00am to 4:00pm. This is a self-guided driving tour along the beautiful Silver Thread Scenic Byway in the San Juan Mountains of Southern Colorado. Visitors can drive from South Fork through historic Creede to Lake City or try the reverse from Lake City to South Fork, enjoying both the beginning of fall color and the incredible wealth of artistic talent in our area. Local artists will welcome you into their home studios or galleries. Artists will answer questions, share techniques, perform demonstrations and showcase a variety of works available for purchase.
The Silver Thread Studio Tour boasts 22 artists at 14 stops this year. The variety of mediums and techniques will make for a very informative day, ranging from the fiber arts to photography to various painting mediums to woodworking. The combined experience and acclaim of the artists is extremely impressive. Many of the artists have national and international recognition in their respective fields.
There will be brochure maps available at the Chamber of Commerce in Creede and South Fork and bright red and yellow signs will guide the way of participants. There is no charge for this event and the public is welcome during these hours without reservations. The Creede Arts Council is proud to sponsor this event.
