The free self-guided fourth annual Artists of the Superstitions spring studio tour is 9 a.m.-4 p.m. March 20-21
“The tours allow you to visit many of the artists’ studios, which are close to each other scattered in front of the awesome Superstition Mountains. The juried artists offer their creativity in clay, fabric, glass, gourds, jewelry, painting, photography, pottery, sculpture, wood, and much more,” according to a release.
“This gives you a wonderful time to just relax and spend the weekend in the Gold Canyon/Apache Junction area, driving roads less traveled, visiting studios, meeting with the artists, and watching them demonstrate their creativity. While visiting each studio, take some time to really see the artworks these artists create, and you might find a special piece that speaks to you,” the release states.
This year’s tour is expected to feature 54 juried artists in 13 studios. Although this is a smaller group than prior years due to the COVID-19 pandemic as well as artists not returning to the area as early as usual, artists are spread out at each studio so that you can practice social distancing while visiting. Hand sanitizer will be available, and masks are recommended.
“We are following these guidelines to protect all of you and us,” the release states.
Maps are available from the Apache Junction Chamber of Commerce, 567 W. Apache Trail; The Gold Canyon Visitors Center at The Live It Well Place, 6607 S. Kings Ranch Road; businesses around Gold Canyon and Apache Junction, and at artistsofthesuperstitions.com.
