The Creede Arts Council has begun planning for our 9th Annual studio tour. This year, it takes place Saturday, September 8th, from 10:00am to 4:00pm. This is a self-guided driving tour along the Silver Thread Scenic Byway. We are creating the list of participating studios early this year, so we may get the brochure done earlier in the Summer, in order to advertise during our busy season! The CAC is committed to this event as it both supports our many talented local artists and serves to expand the tourist season, which benefits the communities of Creede and South Fork. We actively market the event through brochures, press releases and invitations. We also coordinate signage and community involvement in Creede and South Fork.
Patrons of the studio tour are interested in the complete experience of meeting artists and learning more about how their art is created. To that end, we have modified guidelines to ensure a more interactive event. The artists who participate are asked to enrich the patrons’ experience by doing any or all of the following: opening your studio to the public, giving a demonstration, having a question and answer session, having your work on display for discussion and possible sale. The patrons love to meet the artists. We hope this will help broaden the patron experience and help them develop their love of art and, hopefully, increase the artists’ following!
If you have a studio / gallery and are able to participate as outlined above, please contact us at email@example.com or (719) 658-0312, OR click on this link Tour Particpation form 2012 to obtain the entry form.
Note that entries must be received by June 4th
