Check back in early August for the fall schedule.

Artist Studio Tours

Throughout the year, the Associates visit artist studios to witness first-hand the artist's creative process and to discuss their work.

A no-host lunch at a local restaurant normally follows the studio visit. There will be a charge of $5 to cover the cost of the artists’ lunches.
