New Mexico’s Premier Studio Tour
Highlights Santa Fe Artists in their Studios
The 2018 Santa Fe Studio Tour features 76 artists who open their studios to the public for two June weekends: June 16-17 and June 23-24, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Many artists will demonstrate their creative processes. Past visitors have called the tour experience an “intimate total immersion in art,” where visitors meet the artists, experience their artistic environments and purchase art, all while enjoying the landscape of New Mexico. Artwork for sale includes painting, sculpture, photography, ceramics, jewelry, glass, woodworking and other artistic media.
The Tour will host five events in the Santa Fe Community Gallery, Downtown Convention Center, 201 West Marcy Street. First, an opening reception and preview of Tour artists’ work, Friday, June 8, 5:00-8:00 p.m., followed by the group exhibit June 9 – 27 from 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Monday-Friday and 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. on Saturdays. Exhibition curator is Ellen Koment. The remaining three events include two Academic Nights and a Community Fun Day. The Academic Nights, from 6:00-8:00 p.m., include a discussion by the exhibition curator and a panel of artists (Wednesday, June 6), two days prior to the opening reception, and a featured artist speaking (Wednesday, June 20), midway through the tour. The Community Fun Day, Saturday, June 9, 1:00 - 4:00 p.m., features activities for all ages.
Information and a map of the 59 studio tour locations are available at https://santafestudiotour.com/ and the Santa Fe Studio Tour Facebook page. A Tour catalogue with artist images and a map of the studios will be available in June at businesses throughout Santa Fe, at the Community Gallery, and at Tour artists’ studios. The Santa Fe Studio Arts Collective 501(c)(3) sponsors the Tour.
