Those wishing to participate in the Studio Tour should fill out the studio tour application and those wishing to participate in the Gallery Walk, should fill out the gallery application (email firstname.lastname@example.org) The events will be publicized together and a brochure highlighting both events will be produced.
We are seeking studio* artists who would like to participate in the Third Annual Studio Tour on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, Sept. 20 – 22, 2013, from 10:00 AM until 4:00 PM.
The purposes of the tour are:
To assist artists in Silver City and Grant County in marketing their work
To increase awareness of the quality and diversity created in our community
To promote educational experiences for the attendees as they meet the working artists.
The $75.00 studio fee, payable by 04/01/2013, entitles the artist to the following:
1. A full year’s, (ending each February), presence on the SCGSA website which includes six(6) images, a description of the art, contact information, and a link to the artist’s website, if available, as well as the Chamber and ACD websites.
2. The possibility to participate in the annual studio tour.
3. Full membership in SCGSA.
We urge studios to sign up early as the studio tour is limited to 25 sites.
*A studio is the artists dedicated work space. This can be a room in the house, or a separate, free-standing building where the artist will be able to display the art, discuss their process, and/or demonstrate their technique. Demonstrations are required during the tour.
