Art at Work Studio Tours 2011: Call to Artists

20 Jun

You knew it was coming soon! Our Art at Work month, a celebration of local arts in Tacoma held every November, is in its tenth year this year! We’re kicking off the planning by releasing our call to artists to participate in the studio tours during the first weekend of November. Interested? Here’s the info.

10th ANNIVERSARY STUDIO TOURS: November 5 & 6, 2011

Are you a professional artist that lives in Tacoma and/or has a working studio in Tacoma? Do you want to open your studio to the public, demonstrate how you make your work, host a hands-on activity and help raise the visibility of the arts in Tacoma?

Apply to participate in our 10th Anniversary Studio Tour! The Tacoma Arts Commission is seeking professional artists who are willing to open their studios to the public for our annual Studio Tour, one of the features of Art at Work: Tacoma Arts Month this November. The emphasis of the tour is on raising visibility of the arts and providing artistic opportunities for the community to connect to the arts. While we encourage artists to have work for sale, the intention is not primarily as a studio sale. Studios will be open on Saturday, November 5 and Sunday, November 6 from 10 am to 4 pm (artists can choose to be open on Saturday, Sunday, or both days). The Tacoma Arts Commission will publish a map and publicity materials featuring the studios. The studio tours are free to both the artists and visitors.
