Roanoke Artists Open Homes and Studios for 14th Annual Spring Tour
Come see art where it begins! Once again, Roanoke artists will provide a unique opportunity to see art as it is created. In our annual tour, we will display works of art in our home and studios, inviting the public not only to see what we create, but how and where we create it. Feel free to ask questions or simply stroll through any or all of the studios on the Tour.
Our fifteenth annual tour starts at 10:00am Saturday morning, April 25 and runs through Sunday, April 26.
The 2015 tour offers unique insights into how 28 artists live and work.
Focused within 4 distinct city neighborhoods, the public will glean a sense of the community of artists that live in Valley and in the region.
The neighborhoods include Downtown and Old Southwest; Raleigh Court; and South Roanoke, and Southeast.
The last two studio locations are in the Roanoke Industrial Park in old Viscose plant, 1921 Power Street. Guest Artist Tom McDonald’s “Shark Attack” concrete sculptures will be on display at this studio location.
Tour participants can meet the artists, see a body of their recent work, and talk with them about it in a casual atmosphere about their work and their creative process. In many instances, they will also get a chance to peek into working studios.
Art will be offered for sale at each of the exhibition sites.
This is a FREE, self-guided tour, and can be started at any site.
