October 11 & 12, 2014

Come see the spaces in and tools with which local artists create their work, ask questions, purchase one-of-a-kind creations, and even try your hand at creating your own masterpiece. All studios will feature demonstrations of the artistic process or will have hands-on activities for visitors. With so many artists to choose from, all you have to figure out is which studios are on your 'not-to-be-missed' list.

Enjoy this opportunity to connect with Tacoma artists!  

2014 Tacoma Studio Tour Artists

TACOMA STUDIO TOUR - October 11 & 12, 2014
Application deadline: Wednesday, June 11, 2014, midnight

The Tacoma Arts Commission is seeking professional artists who are willing to open their studios to the public for the Tacoma Studio Tour, one of the features of Tacoma Arts Month this October. The emphasis of this tour is on raising visibility of the arts and providing artistic opportunities for the community to connect to the arts. While we encourage artists to have work for sale, the intention is not primarily as a studio sale. Studios will be open on Saturday, October 11th and Sunday, October 12th from 11 am to 5 pm. Artists can choose to be open on Saturday, Sunday, or both days. The studio tour is free to both the artists and visitors.

To qualify you must live within the City of Tacoma limits and/or your working studio must be located within the City of Tacoma limits; you must provide a demonstration of your art form and/or provide a hands-on activity for attendees; and you must actively promote the Studio Tour to your own contacts.
