The tour is a wonderful way to move beyond the gallery walls and see artists in their own work environments. Visiting an artist studio is a different experience than seeing work in a gallery – you have the opportunity to talk intimately with the artist, see works in progress, and hear more about their specialized techniques. Plus, artists have a way of finding places which are inspiring and magical so be ready to view some beautifully creative and natural environments.
