Are you an artist?
After a year of planning, Wasatch Studio Tour debuted October 12-13, 2019 — and what memorable weekend it was! Thousands of guests visited 127 artists in their studios across the Salt Lake Valley where they got a personal look at the creative talent of this city!
If you’re an artist working in clay, glass, wood, fiber, drawing and painting, assemblage, metal, stone, collage, ceramics, found object, digital, photography and more, and would like to show your work to a broader audience, Wasatch Studio Tour is a great opportunity! Click here to be added to our artist mailing list and we’ll stay in touch as we start planning our 2020 event!
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. Or as we heard from many of you… “it’s like the Parade of Homes for artist studios"! Open studio tours are a great way to connect with art lovers, collectors, to test new ideas and have lots of fun along the way. Plus, with our artist mentorship workshops, you’ll also learn more about marketing yourselves as an artist - a skill you’ll use for years to come! For artists with and without gallery representation, it’s a great way to get your work in front of a much larger audience, to build a marketing database and to make some new friends along the way.
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 and thousands of Salt Lake art lovers agree!
