2024 is the 23rd annual presentation of the Bluff Country Studio Art Tour. Always held the last full weekend in April, this loved event draws approximately 3,000 each year. Participating locations see between 40-400 visitors at each of the sites and often varies depending proximity to other participants. Over 90% of the participation fees are used to promote the event using a mailer to previous attendees, printed tour map, website, social media posts & ads, press releases and print signs & ads and various other promotions. Because the event is a studio tour, our preference is for artists to open their studios to the public to demonstrate and show visitors their work process.. Therefore, no less than 50% of participants must be presenting in a studio location. Host locaitons are available for artists from outside the tour area or for artists who have studios that are not handicap accessible or not condusive to tours. Hosted space is limited, may have additional fees and are subject to review & approval by the tour committee.
