Applications are now open online for the 17th Annual Studio ARTour. This a self-guided tour of artists’ studios in the Farmington, Northfield and Faribault, MN area will be held Oct 8-10 and we are looking for artists to participate. Registration now at StudioARTour.com
Artists are welcome whether or not they have their own studio because they can be a guest at another artist’s studio stop*. This year, in addition to our established and experienced creators, we are encouraging young artists, emerging artists and new-to-the-scene older artists who are making work as a second career to apply.
We will also be looking for artists interested in mentoring and hosting these emerging artists, if they need one. This will be reflected in our application which you can access here: https://2021southcentralmnstudioartour.artcall.org
The Studio ARTour is interested in fostering a wider range of artists in this, their 17th annual celebration of regional art and artists. We are looking for makers who are just out of school, or getting started as well as creators who may be retired and starting on a new discipline as a second career. All are welcome to apply to the tour! Whether you are a long-time studio tour artist or brand new, it is a great way to showcase and sell your art. It’s very easy to apply and pay online.
*Each artist must apply individually.
The Studio ARTour is a co-operative event among a group of artists in the areas around Farmington, Northfield, and Faribault. We open our studios to the public on the second weekend in October and invite you to come out and see where and how we work!
In 2020, The ARTour featured 11 studios and 27 artists; many of the studios on the tour have several artists working in a variety of media. The artists are happy to answer questions and provide information about the art. In addition to having work for sale, some studios will have artist demonstrations.
On the Studio ARTour, you can experience a wide range of media. Some of the disciplines represented are: ceramics, glass, jewelry, metal work, painting, photography, textiles, and woodworking.
