It’s time to start thinking about our fall Studio Tour! You’re invited to our informational meeting on Sunday, May 3 at 4:00pm at thegallery8680 (8680 W. Main Street, Frisco, TX 75033). This coincides with the closing reception for thegallery8680’s current show: Place (from 2-4pm), so maybe if you get there a little early, you can see that show, too!
This will be our 5th year for the studio tour, and we have plans to make it even better. We’d love to spend an hour chatting about our vision for the tour. We hope to have lots of exhibiting artists, shows and even some art ‘happenings’ this year. Let’s talk about it in person next Sunday!
If you know someone who may be interested learning about the tour, please invite them, even if they live outside of Frisco. We want to make this tour a huge event, so the more the merrier! We encourage those of you with studios to find some artists to host, and those who need a place to exhibit, to get creative! This town has so much potential, and it needs some creative types to shake it up a bit!
If you need some inspiration on WHY studio tours are important, and what an amazing Studio Tour can look like, check out the East Austin Studio Tour
(great video!), and the West Austin Studio Tour
— something to inspire to. My family hit the EAST tour back in November and it was amazing — there were so many places to see art! And the artists were uninhibited
and didn’t conform to ideals on how and where they showed their work; and they not only had fine art, but all types of creative work (metal work, graphics, etc.) Let that inspire us to expand our ideas of what this can be.
Meeting: Sunday, May 3, 4pm at thegallery8680.
