Spokane, WA) The Little Spokane River Artist Studio Tour turns Sweet 16 in 2023, and the milestone event will showcase the art of 50 artists, on Saturday, September 30, at five studios, located in the stunning Little Spokane River Valley.
“When we started the Little Spokane River Artist Studio Tour 16 years ago, we had no idea that we would receive such tremendous support year-in and year-out from art lovers throughout the Spokane area,” co-founder Gina Freuen said. “Artists share their vision, but art collectors sustain the vision through their encouragement and support.”
The 2023 outdoor show will be held on Saturday, September 30th from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., at the studios of Gina Freuen, Jill Smith, Victoria Brace, Maggie Andersen, and Colista Krebs. The studios are close enough to one another, making it convenient to visit the artists at all five studios, while doing it against the backdrop of a beautiful, Fall day, in one of the most idyllic settings in Eastern Washington.
The Little Spokane River studio artists share their creative visions through a variety of mediums: painting including oil, acrylic, watercolor, encaustic, and resin; sculpture; clay and pottery; jewelry; glass, wood; fiber arts; clothing, costumes and garmenting; photography; printmaking; ceramics; leather; gauche; stone; paper arts such as collage and Origami; and tapestry bags.
This year’s show will include fan favorites, artists who are beloved and collected across the Spokane area and around the country, as well as emerging artists making their mark through memorable, creative expressions.
