2017 10th ANNUAL ARTISTS STUDIO TOUR
The El Paso Artists Studio Tour will take place this year on two weekends in April. April 22 & 23 are the dates for those in Central, Northeast, and San Elizario and April 29 & 30 for those in Downtown, Westside & Upper Valley. Hours will be 10-5 Saturday and noon-5 Sunday.
This year the tour features thirty-eight artists in eighteen locations.
Art lovers browse the private studios, meet the artists and shop for fine art. Admission is free and refreshments will be served at each studio.
The tour is sponsored by the Plein Air Painters of El Paso and The El Paso Scene. Randy Limbird, from the Scene, had this to say; “Walking into an artist’s studio can be a lot of fun. You see what inspires them, their views from the window, and a variety of their work. When people buy art, they’re establishing a relationship with the artists. They’re not just buying a painting, they’re buying a story. So, why not see where the artists live and work? It makes it more appealing.”
Artists in the tour include Ho Baron, Kathryn Johnson, Julie Caffee-Cruz, Joe Langston, Frank Garcia, Alberto Escamilla, Robert Dozal, Martha Arzabala, Romy Hawkins, Hal Marcus, Juan Stockmeyer, Melinda Etzold, Francisco Romero, Lisa Matta, Deana Hicks, Cheryl L. Kilian-Hofer, Terri Wenner, Candy & Charlie Mayer, Krystyna Robbins, Nina Eaton and Rami Scully. Art Junction artists: Yeunhee Lee, Rosario Acosta, Glenn Trittenbach, Gummi Thordarson, C. Manny Guerra, Omar Lopez, Tracy Navar, Cesar Barraza, Gloria Gomez-Kilkenny, Adalberto Ley, Lucy J. Ley, Erica Contreras, John Collins, Kirsten Jedamiczik, Claudia Ley, and Karla Zanelli.
