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.
