Prescott Area Artist Studio Tour October Auction
The Prescott Area Artist Studio Tour is thrilled to hold our first-ever online art auction beginning Friday, October 2 through Friday, October 16, 2020! With it, we are able to:
• Help our artists, who have lost much of their income due to the coronavirus. Therefore, 60% of the winning bid will go directly to them. We appreciate your support.
• Give art lovers like you a chance to purchase works from many award-winning juried Studio Tour artists. Some of the same artists whose studios you may have visited during previous in-person Studio Tours.
• Support children’s art programs in the Prescott Quad-Cities area. Each year we donate to local children’s art programs and the auction will make that possible in 2020.
• Fund next year’s in-person Studio Tour, October 1, 2, and 3, 2021.
Among the auction items, you will find a wide variety of mediums to suit your fancy including painting, ceramics, jewelry, sculpture, fiber, and wearable art. All hand-made, many one-of-a-kind.
You will also be able to connect with artists virtually through enhanced information on the Tour website and in person with those who will have their studios open to visitors by appointment.
Join us as we toast winners at our Facebook Live Auction Wrap Party, Saturday October 17.
About Prescott Area Artist Studio Tour
The Prescott Area Artist Studio Tour is a celebration of the arts and artists in the Prescott Quad-City area. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are unable to hold this annual 3-day, in-person event, in 2020. We want the Studio Tour to be safe for artists and visitors and do not feel that is currently possible.
The in-person Studio Tour will be back in 2021 – October 1, 2 and 3 – mark your calendar.
Instead, we will host our inaugural online art auction October 2 - 16, 2020. We are excited to give art lovers a chance to purchase works from many of our award-winning juried Studio Tour artists. Our artists are eager to share their work with art lovers through the world via this online event.
Go to PrescottStudioTour.com to learn more about the artists, their work, whether their studios are open by appointment, and locations where you may find their work.
