Artist Studio Tour
May 3 - 5, 2019
Mild weather, hot wax, warm ceramics, and hot glass – but that’s not all! It’s the first weekend in May and it’s RED DOT Studio Tour time in Silver City, New Mexico.
May 3-4-5, oil & acrylic painters, encaustic artists, metal sculptors, found-object artists, jewelers, photographers, weavers, potters, clay sculptors, water-colorists, and woodworkers create an amazing weekend to share with you their creative methods and mediums! How? By opening their private studios. Artists will be working and explaining what they do and why. Visitors may also get the chance to participate! Most studios will have work for sale, and some will be open to celebrate art and share.
Brochures with maps to all the studios, as well as copies of the Silver City Art Association Art Guide, are available at Light Art Space, 9 Broadway Street in downtown Silver City, and from the Silver City Visitor Center on Hudson Street.
Studio Tour Gala!
Friday, May 3, 5-8 pm
Light Art Space will, for the second year, produce the Studio Tour Gala located at, 9 Broadway Street, downtown Silver City. To help you decide what studios to visit, there will be an example of artwork by each participating Tour artist at the Gala. These artworks will be on exhibit at Light Art Space all weekend. In addition, images of art by participating Studio Artists will be continuously projected on a THE WALL OF WONDER during the Gala giving art lovers an even more comprehensive idea of the variety of art to be seen at the studios.
The Studio Tour and Gala are free — enjoy art while dining on fabulous finger food, beverages (wine or non-alcoholic punch).
