At a time when Spokane has lost many fine art and fine craft venues, the Little Spokane River Artist Studio Tour thrives, adding new artists and attractions as it grows each year.
The Tour brings together internationally-acclaimed local and regional artists for an exclusive, exciting, one-day event.
The work of Tour artists is represented in museum, public and private collections in 20 countries from Japan and China to Europe, Russia and the Middle East, South America, India and Australia.
Tour artists have won prestigious awards and public commissions in South Korea, France and across the U.S. and the Northwest, and been featured in leading catalogs and in books picturing work by master artists in their media.
The Tour takes place at five artists' studios along the Little Spokane River, where the host artists and 24 carefully-chosen guests present artwork in a wide variety of media and prices.
In addition to fine artwork and beautiful garden settings, the Tour offers lunches and snacks available from Lindaman's, and a gift certificate drawing.
The Little Spokane River Artist Studio Tour takes place Saturday, September 29th, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
"Gina and I have worked together before to present our work and that of other
artists to the Spokane public, and we talked about how much we'd like to do that in
the beautiful settings of gardens and river valley where we live and work. People
loved the studio tour that first year, and the show has grown and added new things
each year since." -Hulda Bridgeman, Tour Host
"Photographs are a perfect representation of a memory. Like memories, they are
distorted from reality and subject to personal (emotional) interpretation. They are
exaggerations of fact through the use of wide angle or telephoto lenses that flatten
three dimensions into two." - Ira Gardner, Photographer
"The individual stones and components almost seem to select each other and create
their own story together. It always pleases me when someone is immediately attracted to
one certain piece. It is as if they hear that particular story, too." -Kris Howell, Jeweler
