The annual Tour of Artists, sponsored by the Wake Forest Guild of Artists, will be held Saturday, Sept. 19 and Sunday, Sept. 20, 2015. The free two-day event will showcase more than 40 local artists, and 11 galleries and studios in historic downtown Wake Forest and surrounding areas. New this year, visitors can participate in hands-on art demonstrations at several of the locations.
No tickets are required to visit the galleries and studios where the public can meet the artists and watch them work both days from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
“For 20 years, Wake Forest artists have shared their creativity and opened their studios to the public during this fall weekend,” said Wake Forest Guild of Artists President Beth Massey. “The Tour has something for everyone who has a love and appreciation of art.”
Hands-on art demonstrations will take place at some of the studios this year, including ART in the DARK- create art while wearing blindfolds; Basic Stained Glass-learn techniques by making a small stain glass sun catcher; and Intro to Alcohol Inks-basic land/seascapes created on a variety of surfaces.
