Artists of Garrett County, in conjunction with the Garrett County Arts Council, invite the public to visit their working studios on Saturday and Sunday, July 28 and 29. Studios will be open from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on Saturday and 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm Sunday. The tour will encompass a broad section of the county and includes 21 artists at 7 separate locations. Artists will provide demonstrations and artwork for sale, as well as the opportunity to talk with them about their artistic process and the business of art in the region.
The Artist Studio Tour is free. An array of work will be featured including pottery, jewelry, fused glass, furniture, photography, wood crafts, painting, sculpture, recycled folk art and handmade paper artwork. This is the fifth annual event. “This is a chance for the community and our guest to really make contact with the variety of talent we have locally. Some of the locations are not generally open to the public.” said an Arts Council spokesperson.
A brochure of the studios is available at a number of area locations including The Gallery Shop, the Visitors Center in McHenry, Ruth Enlow Libraries, and various businesses throughout the area. There will also be directional signage along the tour route to guide drivers to the sites.
