Poets and philosophers who have suggested that "art is the right hand of nature" surely had the Northwoods Art Tour in mind.
More than 30 of Northern Wisconsin's finest artists will open the doors of their studios and galleries from 10 AM to 5 PM on July 25th, 26th, 27th and October 10th, 11th and 12th, giving a unique behind the scenes opportunity to witness the creative process in the natural settings which provide their inspiration.
The self-guided tour winds through some of the prettiest back roads and byways in Vilas, Oneida, Iron, Langlade and Lincoln Counties. Art lovers will not only meet painters, potters, photographers, furniture makers, wood carvers, jewelers, glass and fiber artists face to face on their journey, but also enjoy the process of discovery and potential for unexpected delight.
Many of the galleries featured on the tour are open throughout the year. For the studio artists who often work alone, the tour is a wonderful way to interact with the community, answer questions and share lively discussions in addition to demonstrating and selling their work.
This is the fifteenth year that the Northwoods Art Tour artists have issued their special invitation to the public. Joining the tour for the first time are: #7 Karen Kappell/Marywood Franciscan Spirituality Center (mixed media); #10 Bob Sutor/RuxArts Studio (artist & writer); #14 Paul Lueders Photography; #16 Wesley Bushor/Lost TreeHouse (craftsman); #18 Lisa Krueger/Oak View Studio (mixed media); #25 Old Milltown Depot & Gallery (multimedia gallery); #30 Janice Zindel/Shuttle Works Studio (weaver/fiber artist).
A map and detailed information about each artist and location are available for download. Visitors are encouraged to plan an entire weekend exploring the northwoods and indulging their appreciation for this remarkable group of regional artists.
