The Friends of the Hopkins Center for the Arts are excited to present Studio West Art Tour, an early autumn ramble through the art studios and creative spaces of Minneapolis' western metropolitan communities.
Reintroducing the long-running Lake Minnetonka Studio Tour, Studio West builds on its tradition and expands the geographic reach. For both Host & Guest Artists it is a unique opportunity to connect with new audiences and collectors. Tour-goers will enjoy a self-guided experience exploring new territories of art-making, discovering both fresh talent and the latest work by established favorites.
All artists must submit at least 5 images of artworks representative of what they would offer for sale.
Additionally, artists applying to be a Host Site must submit at least 3 images of their space, including one exterior photo.
Open to U.S. artists working in all mediums. Please note artists must be physically present on site during the hours of the event. The emphasis of the tour is on original work. Limited editions of 1000 or less are acceptable under the provisions below.
Host Artists are required to be current members of the Friends of Hopkins Center for the Arts. Host Sites must be located in within the Minnesota cities of St. Louis Park, Hopkins, Minnetonka, Deephaven, Tonka Bay, or Excelsior.
