South Coast Artists Open Studio Tour Tiverton, Little Compton, RI, Westport, Dartmouth, MA
Celebrating 10 Years of Creativity
with the South Coast Artists Studio Tour
The summer of 2013 will certainly be special for the South Coast as it marks the 10th year that artists will connect with the community by throwing open their studio doors, inviting art lovers from all over New England to explore the inspiring world that they call home.
The 10th annual South Coast Artists Tour is scheduled for two separate weekends, July 20-21 and Aug. 17-18, from 11 am to 5 pm each day. The Tour has become known as the cultural highlight of the summer for this beautiful coastal region of New England. It showcases the visionary works of 75 artists living and working in the coastal towns of Tiverton and Little Compton, RI and Dartmouth and Westport, MA.
The theme of this year's tour is "Creative Waters" whereby artists are encouraged to explore the relationship water has to this area. This will be accomplished through the variety of mediums including paint, encaustic, pastel, watercolor, photography, sculpture, wood, metal, ceramics, jewelry, textiles, basketry and even shells. What they do with those materials to interpret a watery muse should be inspiring and worth a visit to the South Coast.
The tour is very accessible, thanks to an easy-to-read brochure and map, available at many local businesses and online at SCA’s website - www.southcoastartists.org. The self-guided tour will have you traveling down small highways and rural byways, accented with breathtaking coastal views.
