The Eleventh Annual
About Artist Studio Tour
October 20, 21, 22nd, 2017

Each year on the third weekend of October, the annual Round About Artist Studio Tour invites art lovers to visit the working spaces of artists.  This year marks the 11th year for the tour!  There will be a variety of media and styles of artists participating this year who work in painting, photography, wood carving, glass, jewelry, ceramics, fiber and more.  “We invite the public into our studios so they can see us work,” says Caddo River Art Guild president Farrell Ford.  “You’ll see the tools we use, you’ll see us working on our creations, you can talk to us about our inspiration and why we do what we do. It’s very casual, fun, and family friendly.”

Each studio will have art for sale so we invite you to keep your holiday gift list in mind.  Studios will be open Friday and Saturday from 9:00 to 5:00 and Sunday from 1:00 to 4:00.

Free guidebooks with addresses of each location, a map, and information on each artist can be obtained at either of the following locations:

Arkadelphia Arts Center
