Tour opens mysteries of art

FRISCO – Artists and galleries are invited to show their work in the Summit County Arts Council’s (SCAC) Gallery Walk & Studio Tour July 20-21.Galleries may invite an artist to demonstrate his or her craft July 20, and artists may open their studios to the public July 21.”It’s that extra step that often makes people comfortable with a gallery and an artist to add a piece to their collection,” SCAC boardmember Rachel Namoff said. “We are making that extra step possible.””We have a critical mass of at least a dozen artists at a half-dozen galleries,” Michael Adams said. “There are a lot of artists of very high national rank that are represented in galleries in Frisco and Breckenridge. This is a chance for us to do a show for the galleries.”This year, the tour of artists’ studios will be concentrated in a smaller area, rather than scattered throughout the county. If an artist’s studio is not conveniently located, he or she may work at hub locations, such as another studio or gallery.”In the past, the map was all over,” Adams said. “It was not really practical.”With a more concentrated area, it will be easier to meet many artists and see how they work.”I’m sure a lot of people aren’t even aware of what’s in the county,” artist Brian Howard said. “This creates a greater awareness that there actually is an art scene in Summit County. There are a lot of artists out here.””It helps people understand some of the mysteries behind what artists do,” Adams said.There is no fee to participate in the Gallery Walk & Studio Tour, but artists and galleries must be members of the SCAC. Contact the SCAC before June 15 by calling Michael Adams at (970) 547-1122.
