Annual artists tour slated

Thirty-seven artists in 21 studios will display their work during the sixth annual Artists Studio Tour Sept. 8 and 9. Participating artists will open their studios, yards and homes to the public in this once-a-year event. The artwork will be for sale and some artists will provide a demonstration of their particular process. The studios will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. All will provide refreshments, conversation and interesting exhibits.

The opening night reception will take place from 5 to 8 p.m. Sept. 6 at the Historic Camp Richardson Resort Marina. The artists of the Studio Tour will exhibit an example of their work and the reception is free to the public.

A variety of mediums will be represented during the tour, ranging from two-dimensional paintings, drawings, prints and tapestries to three-dimensional subjects such as bronze sculpture, functional ceramics, whimsical wood objects and clay animals.

The Artists Studio Tour has been laid out in a traveling format. With a little planning, art tourists can make the whole loop with little backtracking. The tour will take people through little known residential areas in some very picturesque settings.

So, grab a friend, buy a catalog and prepare to be enlightened and delighted in the sixth annual studio tour. The illustrated catalog features photo samples of the artists’ work. The catalogs cost $12 and are available for purchase at the Tahoe Douglas and South Lake Tahoe chambers of commerce, Borg & Night Master Framing and South Lake Tahoe Antique and Thrift. The Artists Studio Tour is a program of the Lake Tahoe Arts Council. The program is funded in part by a grant from th e Nevada Arts Council, a state agency, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
