SANTA FE, N.M., April 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- In its eleventh year, the Santa Fe Studio Tour 2017 will be two art-filled weekends featuring the work of 70 established and emerging artists. A free, self-guided tour open to the public, visitors can choose to tour any number of open studios and discover a variety of original art – paintings, photography, sculpture, jewelry, ceramics, woodworking, and other one-of-kind works. Many artists give demonstrations of their craft, share techniques and discuss what inspired their work. On Friday June 16 from 5:00pm – 7:30pm the tour begins with an Artists Reception and Preview Gallery, an exhibition of artwork by participating artists. The Preview Gallery is available to visitors over the first weekend at the Santa Fe University of Art and Design.
