As mentioned in previous blogs, the Artisans Road Trip is not just about a weekend open studio tour the first weekend of October - its also about the best artists of NW Iowa and bringing their work to the public!
Many of the A.R.T. artists are busy exhibiting in other area shows and exhibitions throughout the holiday season as well. Small Bussiness Saturday is a really big deal for area artists...they are small business people too! You can find the A.R.T. artists on the A.R.T. website for their studio locations and contacts - http://www.artisansroadtrip.com/ The GALLERY link will take you right the the artist names and these link directly to each individual. Why not shop locally and support your local economy; bring home works created right here in NW Iowa!
Next year will celebrate the Artisans Road Trip's 10th year! 2012 has been a great year - 2013 promises to be even better!!!
Take in the final exhibit of the year in Clear Lake if you're able, and watch for more great things to come in 2013 - Thank you for your support of A.R.T. in Northwest Iowa!
