ART ON THE EDGE Studio Tour of the Central Oregon Coast is a self guided tour of the studio spaces of well known, coastal visual artists for the weekend of May 17th, 18th, & 19th, 2019. The studio sites range in location from Neskowin to Depoe Bay. These artists will show off their exclusive locations, demonstrate their creative processes and sell their work. We invite you to experience our rich local arts community which has the distinction of being located along the beautiful Oregon Coast.
This year the Art on the Edge Studio Tour will include 20 individual artists at 16 locations, three of which are group studios that will feature another 30 artists. Each year the tour includes a variety of medium: oil painting, acrylic painting, watercolor, metal sculpture and casting, driftwood furniture, handmade jewelry, fire painting, glass blowing, clay and ceramic art, photography, weaving, mosaic, colored pencil art, reclaimed assemblage art and print making and fabric arts. The tour booklet also includes many wonderful local businesses who have supported the participating artists.
Purchases of the studio tour booklets and entrance buttons can be made at the Lincoln City Cultural Center, all participating arts organizations and at all of the studio sites throughout the tour dates. Presale at LCCC. Tour costs $10. The tour buttons this year were made by the Taft High School art students and are a unique community art collaboration. They are beautifully crafted, etched in wood and very collectible.
