Private Studio of Tour of Sedona Artists
Oct 25 @ 11:00 am

 Working artists in the Verde Valley are opening their private home studios to visitors the weekend of October 25-27, 2019. This experiential self-guided event will be held during the culmination of fall leaves changing color in the beautiful Verde Valley; covering Clarkdale, Cottonwood, Cornville, and Sedona.   This event, sponsored by the Sedona Visual Artists’ Coalition (SVAC), provides the perfect backdrop for a fall tour in Northern Arizona and is free to the public. 

This is an amazing opportunity to connect with Arizona artists and see a lot of their work at one time,” said Mike Upp, President of SVAC. “The wide range of styles and art forms is a testament to the thriving vitality of the arts community in the beautiful Verde Valley. The event showcases established and emerging talent, so it is an easy way for art enthusiasts to start an art collection.

The artists truly enjoy demonstrating their creative processes as they share their workspaces and, more importantly, make a personal connection with visitors.   Beyond seeing the artist work hands-on, visitors have the chance to buy gorgeous, one-of-a-kind and locally produced artwork directly from the artist.

 

There will be over 45 artists – glass, ceramics, pottery, sculpture, jewelry, painting, drawing, digital art, photography, fiber, weaving and mixed media – participating in Sedona, the Village of Oak Creek, Cornville, Cottonwood, and Clarkdale area. Throughout the weekend, demonstrations of several different art forms will be taking place at various studios. The demonstration schedule is available at http://sedonaartistscoalition.org/os.html or, you can simply pick up a copy at any of the studios.

 

Tour attendees will have the opportunity to enter a studio-wide drawing for a $250 gift certificate to be used at a studio of their choice! To participate in the drawing, attendees must simply complete a form at any studio on the Tour. The Tour runs from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Friday and Saturday, October 25 and 26 and from 12-5 p.m. on Sunday, October 27.

 

Brochures with a complete list of participating artists, including a map, will be conveniently available at numerous locations around the Verde Valley, including hotels and restaurants as well as the Sedona Arts Center and the Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center in Uptown Sedona. For complete information, including artists’ names and mediums, studio locations, a downloadable map, and suggestions and ideas for planning a personalized tour, please visit the SVAC website: http://sedonaartistscoalition.org/ or https://www.facebook.com/sedonaartistsos/
