In early October each year, 45+ artists at 35+ locations will open their doors for a behind-the-scenes studio view not usually offered to the general public. The annual event will feature many well-known award-winning national caliber artists displaying and selling pottery, paintings, woodcuts, baskets, jewelry, woodworking, kaleidoscopes, sculpture, photography, collage, fiber arts and more. Tour participants can set their own pace while driving from studio to studio.
The full-color brochure features a map with GPS and lodging and dining along the route. Directions, maps, GPS coordinates and lodging/dining will be available as web downloads. The tour is free of charge and sites are all within 40 miles of Decorah. Workspaces are open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. all three days.
The Northeast Iowa Artists’ Studio Tour (NIAST Inc.) is Iowa’s first and longest running tour of artists’ studios in the state.
