Wasatch Studio Tour
Step Into Art

For Artists

STUDIO2.jpg

Are you an artist?  

If you’re an artist working in clay, glass, wood, fiber, drawing and painting, assemblage, metal, stone, collage, ceramic, found object, digital, photography and more, and would like to show your work to a broader audience, Wasatch Studio Tour is for you!

If you haven’t experienced a city-wide studio tour, imagine an entire city that participates in an art stroll over the course of a weekend and you’re there! In this case, you exhibit your work in your studio to friends, family and the general public. It’s a great chance to test ideas, get feedback, add to your marketing database and make sales. For artists with and without gallery representation, it’s a great way to get your work in front of a much larger audience. Studio tours happen in hundreds of cities across the country — google “artist open studio tour” in virtually any city and you’ll find a well-established tour. We believe it’s time for SLC to take its place on that list!

In an increasingly digital world, we believe connecting artists and art enthusiasts, in person, and in a studio, is still the best way to experience art. We hope you agree and will consider being part of this pioneering event by joining Wasatch Studio Tour!
