Welcome to the Spring Art Tour

June 2-4, 2017

Discover the magic! Explore the treasures that await you under magnificent wide open springtime skies. View the vistas, prairies, and gardens that inspire this area's artists. They will welcome you into their home, gallery, and farm studios. Be inspired as you watch them create woodwork, wheel thrown pottery, beautiful jewelry, gourd art, fine art paintings and much more. Wander through South Central Wisconsin as you tour the rarely seen Open Art Studios of Mount Horeb and surrounding areas; as far north as Sauk Prairie/Prairie du Sac, as far west as Barneveld/Ridgeway, as far south as Blanchardville/New Glarus, and as far west as West Middleton/Verona. Connect the dots on our map and create your own unique Spring Art Tour. Relish the ride!  (Downloadable Brochure PDFs available in December.)
