Saturday, April 28, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, April 29 noon to 5 p.m.
Our tour starts on Saturday morning, April 28 and runs through Sunday, April 29. The tour offers unique insights into how artists live and work. Focused within 5 distinct city neighborhoods, the public will glean a sense of the community of artists that live in Valley and in the region. The four neighborhoods include Old Southwest, Raleigh Court & Grandin Village, South Roanoke, and Southeast Roanoke Industrial Park.
Media include sculpture, painting, drawing, collage, assemblage, photography, fiber and ceramics. Participants can meet the artists, see a body of their recent work, and talk with them about it in a casual atmosphere about their work and their creative process. In many instances, they will also get a chance to peek into working studios. Art will be offered for sale at each of the exhibition sites.
