Who can participate in Wasatch Studio Tour? Full or part time artists, working in the Salt Lake Valley, devoted to and actively engaged in their art practice who have or are willing to find a suitable studio space to exhibit.
When is Wasatch Studio Tour? TBD 2020
Where does Wasatch Studio Tour take place? Your studio located in the Salt Lake Valley. The public is interested in seeing what makes you an artist including your studio space. This will be a great opportunity for you to discus your process and concepts in the place where it all happens.
I live outside the Salt Lake Valley, can I still participate? Yes. But you must find a suitable venue in the SL Valley to set up a weekend studio and to display your work, preferably with an artist who has a studio.
My studio is in my home, can I still participate? Yes. Many artists work out of their home and if you are comfortable inviting people into your space, this will be a great opportunity for you to interact with the public and let them see what makes you an artist. After you have registered, you will be encouraged to attend a workshop on how to conduct an open studio, including one in your home studio.
I am not comfortable inviting the public into my home. We understand not all artists are comfortable inviting people into their home studios. The best alternative is to combine efforts with a friend who is an artist with a studio who is willing to share space. Better yet, form a group site! Stay in touch to learn more about our enhanced group site program for 2020.

I can’t be open on both days: We understand not all artists can be open both days but would still like you to participate. Please contact us to make arrangements for one-day participation.
I have Gallery representation in Salt Lake, can I still participate? WST supports the artist/gallery relationship and believe that meeting artists in their studio only enhances gallery/artist relationships. We’ve gotten encouragement and positive feedback from many SLC galleries who recognize the benefit to their business and to the art community in general. That said, artist with gallery representation are responsible for making arrangements with your galleries.
I am part of an artist collective, can I participate? Yes. We have a program designed to meet the needs of larger collectives. If you are a site of four or more artists in one location, contact us to start the process.
Can I share studio space with a friend or two? Yes! We encourage artists to form groups! There are several benefits including increased traffic, and the enjoyment of hanging out with your artist friends all weekend!
I have a question that is not addressed above: Please contact us and we’ll get back to you quickly!
