Artisan's Road Trip Call To Artists!
The Northwest Iowa Artisans Road Trip is more than just an open studio tour. For the people following the Tour, it’s a chance to get out on a fall weekend to meet local artists in person, see the studios where they work, ask questions about their motivation, watch demonstrations of techniques, and of course, purchase new artwork for their collections.
For the artisans involved, the Road Trip is a powerful networking and marketing opportunity. Not only can you personally connect with a wider audience, you also get to know the other artists on the Road Trip through group exhibitions and meetings. In 2015 alone - A.R.T. has 5 exhibits scheduled throughout the year!
Nowhere else can you get the effective advertising and promotion implemented across so many venues (newspapers, radio, television, regional gallery exhibitions, a comprehensive website and regularly updated blog, and more) for the price of the annual registration fee.
The A.R.T. Directory and Tour Guide brochure alone has been cited by many artisans as a direct cause of sales. Full-color brochures are sent out each year by mail and distributed to Iowa Welcome Centers, public libraries, cultural centers, restaurants, motels, and retail establishments throughout the area. A.R.T. is organized and run by artists for artists. Together we work to increase art exposure, introducing new art styles to the community and new customers to local artists.
