The free self-guided Artists of the Superstitions Fall Studio Tour is 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Nov. 6-7.
The annual studio tour has become an anticipated event for art lovers since it began in 2007, according to a release.
“You will be able to visit the artists’ studios, which are scattered in front of the awesome Superstitions Mountains. The juried artists offer their creativity in clay, copper, fabric, glass, gourds, jewelry, painting, photography, pottery, sculpture, wood and more. You will be treated to unique locally handcrafted wearables and home décor,” the release states. “This will provide a wonderful opportunity to just relax and spend the weekend in the Apache Junction/Gold Canyon 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 art works these artists create, and you might find a special piece that speaks to you.”
This year’s tour is expected to feature 55 artists in 13 studios. Although this is a smaller group than prior years due to COVID-19 and artists not returning to the area as early as usual, artists will be spread out at each studio so people can practice social distancing while visiting. Hand sanitizer will be available and masks are recommended. The show is following guidelines to protect all of you and us, the release states.
Maps for the tour are available from the Apache Junction Chamber of Commerce, 567 W. Apache Trail, and at artistsofthesuperstitions.com. The map includes the addresses of each studio on the tour, the names of the artists and each artist’s special medium. Maps will also be available at each studio.
