This self-guided tour begins 3 miles from Frog Meadow in picturesque South Newfane. For most visitors, the draw of Rock River Artists Studio Tour is the unique alchemy that results when you have 20 world-class artists living within a 12-mile radius!
When these artists open their homes, gardens and studios to the public for the weekend, the experience is comfortably intimate. Though this is a tour, participants are not treated like tourists: everyone is invited in as a back-door neighbor. And while the tour includes many artists whose works regularly appear in big-name galleries and museum collections, that is not the point here. A museum visit resembles Rock River the way a display of stuffed lions resembles a safari.
The art in its native habitat, much of it in progress, still pulses with the ideas, emotions and other mysterious forces that originally called it into being. So come be a “neighbor” and check out the Rock River Artists Open Studio Tour!
