Arts Visalia Announces Studio Tour Exhibition

In the first exhibition of their 2010 exhibition calendar, Arts Visalia will present an exhibition featuring the artists of the upcoming Three Rivers Artists’ Studio Tour. The Creative Life will showcase artworks by the twenty-one artists participating in the upcoming tour.  The exhibition will be on display from January 6 through January 29 with a public reception where the public may meet the artists on Friday, January 8 from 6 to 8pm.  Admission is free and open to the public.

Every other year since 1994, numerous Three Rivers artists open their private studios to the public for one weekend in March.  With the purchase of a ticket, visitors are provided maps for a weekend driving tour to each studio, a perfect excuse to spend a day driving through one of the most beautiful parts of Tulare County.  This is a wonderful opportunity to meet with these talented individuals in their working environments, a chance to get a behind-the-scenes view of the creative process.  This year’s tour will take place on  March 19 –21.

Arts Visalia is located at 214 East Oak Avenue in downtown Visalia.
