2019 12th Annual Artists Studio Tour
Dates for the 2019 Studio Tour were April 27 & 28 and May 4 & 5. NOTE: This year the organizers divided the city at University Avenue to better evenly distribute the locations. April 27 & 28 featured all artists WEST of University (Westside & Upper Valley) and May 4 & 5 featured those EAST of University Avenue (Downtown, Central, Northeast, Eastside & Mission Valley.)
Art lovers browsed the private studios, met the artists and shopped for fine art. Admission was free and refreshments were served at each studio.
The tour was sponsored by Hal Marcus Gallery and The El Paso Scene. Randy Limbird, from the Scene, had this to say; "Walking into an artist's studio can be a lot of fun. You see what inspires them, their views from the window, and a variety of their work. When people buy art, they're establishing a relationship with the artists. They're not just buying a painting, they're buying a story. So, why not see where the artists live and work? It makes it more appealing."
