Back by popular demand, the Artists’ Studio Crawl is scheduled for Nov. 18, 10 a.m.-2p.m., and Nov. 19, noon-4 p.m.
Hosted by Maricopa Arts Council (MAC), visitors to the artists’ studios will see the processes used to create each artist’s individual works in progress and completed. The artists engage in conversation about what inspires them, tools they use and how those tools create their final works.
Studio crawls are drive-yourself tours around the city allowing the visitor to spend some time at each artist’s studio and enjoy a relaxing atmosphere for an inspirational afternoon. Also this year, two of the artists will be featuring fellow artists in their home.
Glass bead and jewelry maker Diane Hebert will be joined in her home by Linda Taylor, gourd artist, and Deb Jay, quilling artist. Cynthia and Steve Portray, artisans in wood and woven works, will be joined in their home by Nelda Mullins, mixed media artist, and Beth Soucie, weaver artist. Rocky Dunne will be featuring her fused glass creations, and Susan Cameron will display her mixed media and painting works.
This is the beginning of a busy season for MAC, which is also working on a “Shop Small” artisan and outdoor art fair in November for Christmas shopping. A date and location are not yet set.
