2020 South Central MN Studio ARTour

The Studio ARTour is a co-operative venture among a group of artists in the areas around Farmington, Northfield, Nerstrand and Faribault, Minnesota. We open our studios to the public on the second weekend in October (in 2020: Oct 10, 11 & 12) and invite you to come out and see where and how we work!

In 2020, we will celebrate the 16th year of putting on the tour!  In 2019 the ARTour featured 18 studios and 45 artists; most studios have several artists working in different media. The artists are glad to answer questions and provide information about the art, and some studios will have demonstrations.

The range of work is amazing; weaving to welding, glass to gemstones, clay to carving – and paper in between. Whether you are a long-time collector, or are just looking for something unique, the studio tour is a perfect way to shop for fine art, and best of all the tour is free for Participants!
