Most artists, either at private studios or in Art Centers, will be demonstrating their craft – a fabulous way for you to learn about how the work is created, the materials used and the time it takes. And don’t miss this opportunity to purchase a wide range of artwork directly from the artist for yourself or as gifts.

 

The Tour will launch with a gala reception on Wednesday, October 3 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Elks Performing Arts Center in Prescott. This event is free and open to the public, and will provide attendees with an early chance to meet several artists featured on the Tour and view their work while enjoying music and refreshments.

 

Most artists on the Tour will be raffling one of their works of art. Raffle tickets may be purchased and used at any Tour location. Proceeds from ticket sales will be used to fund next year’s Tour, as well as art programs for children in the Quad-City area. The winning tickets will be drawn after 4:00 pm on the last day of the Tour.

About the Tour

2018 marks the 11th annual Prescott Area Artist Studio Tour. The Tour is a celebration of the arts and the artists in the Prescott Quad-City area. This free, self-guided tour is a 3-day event that commences on the first weekend in October. The tour hours are 10:00 am until 4:00 pm daily. You are welcome to start at any location on the Tour (updated maps will be available in several weeks).

 

This year, there are 80 juried artists at 51 private studios. The Tour provides an opportunity to meet these extraordinary artists, enjoy their private studios and view their creative processes in a variety of mediums.

 

In addition to the artists’ private studios, in 2018 there are 3 Art Centers hosting additional artists. Art Centers are organizations that encourage arts practice and provide the facilities for ongoing art education. The artists exhibiting at each Art Center must meet requirements set by the Center.

Have fun as you take the Tour!
