ABOUT THE TOUR
Experience the diversity and creativity of the South Hills of Pittsburgh by visiting the real working studios of the accomplished artisans in the area. Genuine works of art will be available to view and purchase. On October 12, 2013 from 11am to 5pm, tour the studios, meet the artisans, enter to win a piece of work from each studio and one of the participating artisans.
The South Hills Artisans Tour was founded by a core group of South Hills artists with the intent to enhance the community's awareness of professional artisans living and working in the region. South Hills Artisan Tour is loosely based on other events occurring through numerous towns and cities in US. This year, artists will again open their studios and collaborate to make a public showing of their work. All Tour artisans have gone through an approval process that ensures that the crafts and artwork are of the highest quality. This year's 2nd annual Tour will continue the tradition of showcasing Western PA's talented artisans.
The South Hills Artist Tour core group share and coordinate activities to promote sales, publicity, marketing and exposure for each participating artist. The tour allows artisans to pool expenses for publicity, press coverage, share information, and support.
Arts and Craft lovers can expect to see displays of some of South Hills finest crafts including pottery, paintings, mixed media, fused glass, wood turning, and more. There will be artist demonstrations, question and answer sessions and opportunities to learn about the working processes in each studio, along with some hands-on experience. The Tour provides an excellent opportunity to purchase the work of talented area artisans as unique gifts or for your own collection.
The Tour is self-guided and is free and open to the public. Each studio on the Tour also provides snacks, hot and cold beverages created by the artisan.
