The Kickoff Party for the 2019 RED DOT Artists’ Studios Tour will be Friday May 3 from 5 pm until 8pm at the Tour Headquarters, Light  Art Space Gallery, 209 W. Broadway.

The Kickoff party will offer a chance to see examples of art from all 22 studios on the RED DOT Tour. This free event will feature fabulous food by the Duckstop and music by Aaron Manning, guitarist.  Back by popular demand will be the 49.99 Art Auction and the Wall of Wonder continuous digital display of works by participating artists. Art at the Light Art Space Gallery may be viewed all weekend. Tour Headquarters at Light Art Space Gallery will have brochures with art images typical of each artist along with a map to the studios.  Brochures may also be picked up at the Murray Ryan Visitor Center and at most downtown galleries.

Sponsored by the Silver City Art Association, the RED DOT Artists’ Studio Tour is a welcoming event by artists who open their workspace for the public to experience the many ways art is produced. Oil painting, acrylic painting, watercolor painting, fiber, clay modeling and wheelwork, metalwork, creating with found objects, photography, layering  hot beeswax, printmaking with plates and a press or transferring ink from plate to paper with hand pressure, as well as blowing molten glass are some of the art media and techniques to be seen at the studios. In some studios visitors will be able to personally experience working with the media. Studios will be open Saturday and Sunday from 9 am to 5 pm.  Most studios will have work for sale.

Along with the Tour map, look for RED DOT ART signs at intersections to assist in finding participating studios. Start anywhere on the Tour and experience the adventure of finding fascinating art at Studios from intown Silver City to Lake Roberts to Wind Canyon and all places in between.
