The Artists of the Superstitions event features 67 juried artists in 17 studios, according to a release.

"This free self-guided tour is like our Fall Studio Tour, which has become an anticipated event for art lovers since it began in 2007. We are anticipating that the Spring Studio Tour will become as popular as well," the release states.

"The tours allow you to visit many of the artists’ studios, which are close to each other scattered in front of the awesome Superstitions Mountains," it states.

The juried artists offer their creativity in clay, fabric, glass, gourds, jewelry, painting, photography, pottery, sculpture, wood and more.

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.
