Welcome to the ninth annual South Coast Artists Studio Tours. This is your chance to visit the studios of some of the best artists living, working and exhibiting in the four beautiful coastal towns of Tiverton, Little Compton, Westport and Dartmouth. Whether this is your first visit, or youâ€™re a seasoned traveler to the South Coast, youâ€™re sure to be impressed by the amazing quality and incredible range of creative work being produced in these scenic communities.
This year the tour features two separate weekends, July 21â€“22 and August 18â€“19, and includes over 70 exhibiting artists.
The self-guided tour will take you across small highways and rural byways of stunning natural beauty. Along the way youâ€™ll discover the work of welcoming artists working in such diverse mediums as oils, acrylics, watercolors, photography, sculpture, basketry, fiber arts, ceramics, glass, wood, metal, jewelry, paper and mixed media. All you have to do is follow the map in the brochure and look for the blue and white Open Studio signs and windsocks marking each studio or gallery. And, if you canâ€™t make it to every gallery on the tour, remember that each artist can be reached through SCAâ€™s Artist Member Directory on the website, www.southcoastartists.org,Â and plans can be made with individual artists for a visit some other time.
Both Open Studio Tour weekends are free, open to the public, and require absolutely no registration. For any further questions please contact Don Cadoret at email@example.com.
