While the artists are bustling, getting their studios ready for visitors, you should purchase your tour book and plan out your weekend. While you probably can’t make it to EVERY studio, we’d love it if you can visit as many as possible.
Mistlin Gallery, at 1015 J Street, will be open at 9:00 a.m. Saturday, to sell tour map booklets. Most artists will have a few on hand as well if you’re going directly to a studio. Books are $10 each for adults and free for kids under 18.
Plan to make a trip through our sponsoring galleries. Mistlin Gallery and the Carnegie Art Center in Turlock are having a joint exhibition, the “Central California Art Showcase” where many of the tour artists are on display. The Chartreuse Muse gallery will be open Saturday.
Nasco retail store will be open Saturday from 10 – 3 where artist, Lynn Takacs, will be doing a demonstration and showing her art.
Don’t forget, on your tour booklet is an entry form for a drawing to win a $200 gift certificate good for art from any tour participant. Entry forms can be dropped off at any studio location throughout the weekend. The drawing will be held in early May.
Support our community by dining local during the tour days, and supporting our other sponsors: Trewin Framery, Arrowhead Insurance, Modesto View Magazine, Integrity Fiduciary Services, Slater’s Home Furnishings and The Park’s Group.
