Wasatch Studio Tour is Open for Registration

As a member of the Utah Watercolor Society, we’d like to invite you to participate in Wasatch Studio Tour — Salt Lake City’s first valley-wide open studio event happening this coming October 12 & 13. The sole objective of the tour is to promote dedicated artists working in a variety of media types living in the greater Salt Lake area by promoting them and their work to a broader audience.

If you have not experienced a large open studio tour, imagine a city-wide art stroll happening over the course of a weekend. Hundreds of cities in the US have established and very popular studio tours and it’s time SLC joins that list.

Studio tours are a great way to engage friends, family, art enthusiasts and collectors with your art practice by interacting with them one on one in the space you make your art. Tours let you build your contact list, meet new collectors, strengthen existing collector relationships and make sales — it’s a win-win for everyone!

We offer three levels of pricing: individual artists, mini-groups of 3 artists in one location and group sites of 4 or more artists in one location. Details are at the “for artists” tab on our website.

Tour participants will benefit from extensive marketing, press releases, community events calendars, social media and inclusion on WST’s website for one year, including an artist bio, face pic and up to five images of your work. Participants will also have access to a marketing tool kit and be invited to participate in events designed to help you produced an enjoyable and successful open studio.

We realize many artists work from home studios and aren’t comfortable inviting people into their homes. If so, consider teaming up with friends that have studios by forming a group site, receive a discount and increase traffic. Also, join our Facebook group wasatch_studio_tour to both offer and look for shared studio space.

We know this is a new concept for many, but we also know that open studios are highly anticipated and well loved events in the many cities where they take place and we think it’s time for Salt Lake to be among them..

We’d love to start a conversation with the Utah Watercolor Society to see how we might help you participate in this event.

Call for Artists:  Evolutionary Health Care Gallery

Evolutionary Health Care Gallery, 461 East 200 South SLC has an opportunity for artists to display! We have a lot of wall space and exhibit artists 2-3 months at a time. Our hours are 9-5 during the week. The works are viewed by many people who are coming as patients. We participate in the Downtown Gallery Stroll. I am currently looking for artists for June through the summer.
I know it is last minute but wondered if enough artists from the UWS would want to hang some of their works in our space during the summer?
I would love to hear from you for this summer or a later date.

UWS member, Jana Parkin, will be teaching a workshop at a castle in France in June 2020. Marouatte Castle, in the Dordogne region, sits on 240 acres of woodlands and looks like a fairy tale castle! Artists actually get to stay at a private room in the castle. Each has a private bath as well. We will also take day trips to the surrounding villages, which are amazingly picturesque and begging to be painted. Fairly nearby are the famed Lascaux caves, and Grotte de Villars with Neolithic paintings dating from 19,000 BC.
Visit janaparkin.com to be placed on the email list for more information about the castle workshop. Or reach out to her directly: janaparkinart@gmail.com.
