The Creede Arts Council is enthusiastically preparing for the 10th Annual Silver Thread Studio Tour. This year, it will take place Saturday, September 7th from 10:00am to 4:00pm. This is a self-guided driving tour along the Silver Thread Scenic Byway.
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. In order to increase our marketing to a broader area with paid advertising, banners and brochures, we are seeking sponsorships from patrons and businesses (see below).
Entries and fees are due no later than June 10th, 2013.
Please view and print the required forms by clicking Call for Studio Tour 2013 Artists

to view, and if you like download and print, the Map/Brochure for this year’s Silver Thread Studio Tour.
update as of 7/26/12
As soon as the Studio Tour maps are completed, they will be available around the area.
AND, as an added bonus, it will also be available here in Adobe pdf format, so that you may print one for yourself just before the tour occurs (in case you didn’t get one before, or in case you did get one and misplaced it, or in case you simply need a more convenient method of obtaining a map).
We should be able to post a pdf as soon as they have been designed and include all of the late entries, hopefully around August 8th or sooner.
Note that the hard-copy version of the map will be available around the middle of August, or about 10 days after the pdf version is given to us.
Thanks for your interest!
Here’s the rack card coming soon to the Chamber offices in Creede and South Fork. Sorry that it’s a little blurry! It won’t be blurry in print-form! Note the list of participating artists. Save the Date!!!!
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
Thank you in advance for your willingness to share your studio and work. We look forward to a successful tour. And, thank you for your continued support of the Creede Arts Council and local art along the Silver Thread Scenic Byway.
