Five Stanislaus County artists have been selected as purchase award winners for the 2013 Artist Open Studio Tour.
What does that mean? Participating artists were asked to submit one piece of art to the purchase award contest. The entries were juried by Deanna Hunt, a professor of art at University of the Pacific. From the twenty entries, she selected to top ten. The AOS committee then, decided to purchase the top five from the artists. In April, these works will be given away to participants in the open studio tour.
Included in the tour map booklet is an entry form that can be dropped off at any artists’ studio during open studio weekend. From the submitted entry forms, a drawing will be held and the paintings will go to the winners.
