Davis artists are invited to join the Davis Art Studio Tour, planned from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, April 12-13.
The tour is an opportunity for new and established artists to show their creations, develop new fans and sell art.
Last year, 26 artists opened their studios for the weekend and the general consensus was that it was a success in terms of meeting new patrons, selling art and being able to gain exposure with potential clients and the public at large. This year promises to be even more successful with larger crowds and more participating artists, a news release said.
In addition to the open studios, each participating artist also will have one example of their work exhibited at a show April 3-16 at The Artery, 207 G St. in downtown Davis. The artists will be honored at a reception on April 11 as part of the Second Friday ArtAbout.
Applications are being accepted now for a limited number of openings for new artists; the deadline is Jan. 15. For more information and an application, visit www.davisartstudiotour.com. Applications also will be available at The Artery.
