East Cape Throws Artist Studio Tour

BY: ART MAJOR

Did you ever wonder what an  artist’s studio looks like?  Ever wonder where they get the inspiration for the treasures they create?  Well, here is  your chance to see the home studios of about 15 different artisans who reside in the Los Barriles area. See where it all becomes a master piece and see what new things they are creating.  Artists on the tour vary from fabric, jewelry, bead or soft goods medium, oil and water color paintings, ceramic and pottery and wood or rocks. Some work out of a part of their homes, others have stand alone studios or rented space in commercial areas.

This is a great opportunity to see how your favorite artist works and where they work,  create and bring their master pieces to life. You can also see many of the artists in action as they work right there as you come by. Don’t miss this great opportunity to enjoy, view and even purchase some great works of art. This is a chanxe to cut out the middleman at the gallery and buy direct from the artist.
