The 21st Annual Chatham Studio Tour Takes Place in Chatham County, NC - Dec. 7-8 & Dec. 14-15, 2013

The Chatham Studio Tour celebrates its 21st year, one of the oldest and most established artist’s studio tours in the state of North Carolina. A colorful brochure with a self-directed map (and a Google map on the web site) guide the art adventurer through Chatham County, to visit the studios of fifty-two working artists. These artists have earned their place on the tour through a jury process that selects high caliber, original art. A visitor to a Chatham artist’s studio may expect to see art of outstanding quality that is professionally displayed. The visitor will have a special glimpse into the personal environment where the art was created, the process used in making the art, and the possibility of including the art in one’s own collection.

Collecting art is an investment in one’s self and one’s home. Supporting local artists is an investment in the community.

Brochures and maps will be available at local shops and eateries and Chatham County Community College or can be downloaded from (www.ChathamArtistsGuild.org).

A reception for the artists will take place on Friday, Dec. 6, 2013, from 7-9pm at the Chatham County Community College, 764 West Street in Pittsboro, NC. Please bring a non-perishable donation (no glass, please) for CORA food pantry!

The Chatham Studio Tour takes place on Saturday, Dec. 7 and Sunday Dec. 8, 2013 from 10am-5pm, and then again on Saturday, Dec. 14 and Sunday Dec. 15, 2013, from 10am-5pm.

A show of works by Tour artists will take place at FRANK Gallery in Chapel Hill, NC, from Dec. 12 - 16, 2013. A reception will be held on Dec. 12, from 6-8:30pm.

During the first two weekends of December, just west of Cary and south of Chapel Hill, discover the diverse artistic talents in Chatham County. Here you will discover traditional and contemporary artists and crafts persons including painters, potters, sculptors, photographers, jewelers, woodworkers, fiber artists, basket makers and more. Fifty-two artists invite you into their homes and studios for a unique opportunity to see and purchase their work. It is a great opportunity to talk directly with the artists about their inspiration and artistic process.

The Chatham County Studio Tour was founded in 1992 which makes it one of the oldest in the State, a prototype for other area studio tours, and a highly respected art venue.

Brochures and maps will be available at local shops and eateries and CCCC or can be downloaded from (www.ChathamArtistsGuild.org).
