The 2018 Oxford Studio Tour

Spring is on its way, and with it, anticipation of this year’s studio tour!  Our dates this year are May 5 & 6, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., so be sure to mark your calendars now as you don’t want to forget and plan something else by mistake.

The website is now completely up to date with all of this year’s artists, their locations including Google Maps, and samples of their work.  We also have the maps that are printed on the backs of the brochures on this site.  Our printed brochures will not be ready for another couple of weeks but feel free to request that one be sent to you by contacting us through the site, or by contacting any individual artist.  We will be happy to mail one to you.  Otherwise, they will be available in the usual locations around the county (libraries, kind and helpful businesses, tourism offices, etc.).  Speaking of kind and helpful businesses, be sure to check out our sponsors and their websites.  A huge thank you to all of them!

Unlike other years, we will not be posting about the artists or locations on this blog on a regular basis leading up to the tour dates.  Instead, we will be relying on each artist to promote the tour (and of course their stop on it) themselves, using the Facebook page, and their own email mailing lists or their own blogs or other social media accounts.  This spreads out the work and probably also reaches a wider audience.  Anything you readers can do to help us is much appreciated.  As artists, our advertising budgets are limited and sometimes our knowledge of where to advertise or simply broadcast the news is also limited.

Thank you for taking the time to read this, and we hope to see you in our studios this May!

 

Location #10 on the Oxford Studio Tour

Yikes.  Has it been two days since we posted?  So it has.  Artists have a warped sense of time, you know.  I’m sure if you personally know any artists, you’ll agree with us.  But then again, we are very busy right now getting ready for this tour!!

This location has some really interesting media – check out all of the descriptions here.  These are some things you are going to want to get a nice personal look at.  And the setting at this location is really pretty – once you cross the train tracks in the driveway, you are approaching the bank of part of a river/pond which the property looks over.

LOCATION #10

MAP Note: Railroad tracks cross the driveway.  You may wish to park in the area to the left of the driveway between the road and the tracks, for safety when leaving so you don’t have to back  your vehicle across the tracks.
