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.
