Welcome to the Spring Art Tour: June 3-5, 2016
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, Verona, Mazomanie, Black Earth, Blue Mounds, and towns in between. Connect the dots on our map and create your own unique Spring Art Tour. Relish the ride!
Brochures for the tour will begin to be distributed early in the year of the tour. It includes a map of the artists' locations and examples of their artwork. In addition links to other maps will become available in the Spring prior to the event. If you would like to receive a brochure and be included on our annual mailing, please let us know.
Announcing the 2016 Poster & Raffle Artists! We are excited to announce that Peggy Flora Zalucha is the 2016 Poster artist.
