I am very excited to be a part of the fall art tour for 2011. I will be hosting the event on our family farm on Schneider Road. Being a part of the tour has been a long term goal of mine as it is a very well respected and attended event. The thing that I like most about the tour is the professionalism of everyone involved as well being welcomed into a community of the area's best artists.
This year's brochure looks great, and the website will be up soonBeing a part of the tour has also lead my work to be represented by the Cornerstone Gallery which is the Baraboo headquarters for the tour. I have a collection of paintings down there now and am getting ready to stock more there as well as the Blue Heron in Reedsburg.
More about the tour, from last years website:
The third full weekend each October, some of Wisconsin's best-known artisans open their studios, allowing visitors a unique, behind-the-scenes view into how their work is created. Known as the Fall Art Tour, each year it draws visitors from all over the country to artists' studios tucked away in the scenic hills in and around Wisconsin's art communities of Baraboo, Spring Green, Dodgeville, and Mineral Point. During the three-day tour, artists will be in their studios, demonstrating and selling their work.
Many of these studios are open only for this event, providing a unique opportunity to meet the artists and purchase their work. So join us on a drive through the autumn countryside during this once-a-year event that includes a rare glimpse into the restored breweries, one-room schoolhouses, and historic storefronts where some of Wisconsin's best-known artists work.
Finally, a painting.
