With more artists than ever before, the members of the Cross Timbers Artist Guild will open their studios November 7 & 8 for the 14th Annual Artist Open Studio Tour. The purpose of the Studio Tour is to introduce the public to artists and to provide an opportunity to explore places where they create and the artistic processes they employ. In addition to seeing how and where art is created, the tour also increases the awareness that art thrives in these neighborhoods, far from the art districts in the urban areas. Since its origin with 6 artists in 2002, the tour has grown to 26 artists. Some of the mediums are, steel, glass, water color, clay, oils, pencil, wood, and photography.
The Guild is composed of artists who live and work in the neighborhoods of Lewisville, Flower Mound, Highland Village, Double Oak, Copper Canyon, Argyle and Bartonville. There will be an opening reception Friday at 7:00PM at Premier Gallery, 1681 Justin Road, Flower Mound.
