In this small town just one hour from New York City, some of the finest artists in the country have called Weston, Connecticut home. In celebration of this heritage of cultivating fine art for more than a hundred years, WestonArts is proud to announce their Fall Open Studios Art Tour on Saturday, October 8th, 2016 from 11am to 5pm.
The tour begins at 11am at Weston Town Hall where participants can check in, purchase tickets $10 per person (children under 12 are free) and receive their map and catalogue with addresses for the open studios of nine of Weston's fine artists. Visitors are invited to drive at their own pace to the studios where each artist will be on hand to discuss their techniques and their art. In addition to meeting these nationally recognized artists, visitors will have the opportunity to purchase art directly from the studios.
Art is an important part of who we are in Weston. During the tour participants will have a chance to meet widely known artists, like Frances Palmer, whose collectible ceramics and pottery are available in many fine stores as well as Hans Wilhelm at his illustration table where he has crafted more than 40 children's books.
Tickets will be on sale throughout the day (rain/shine) at Town Hall on October 8th until 3:30PM. Online ticket sales will begin on September 7th at purchase
