The Bighorn Gallery exhibit will include all 23 of the 2013 Studio Tour artists, according to a news release from Dead Horse Point State Park. The exhibit will include a diverse array of media including watercolor, pastel, oil and acrylic painting, stained glass, fabric creations, photography, sculpture and gourds.
“If we show it, you should come,” said Bruce Hucko, one of the tour organizers. “This is a wonderful opportunity for the community to see all of our work in one place. You can use the exhibit as a live mini tour and decide which artists you want to visit on a more lengthy and personal basis during our main event.”
The original three-artist, three-site event has steadily grown and now includes 23 artists at 15 different sites, Hucko said. This year, the studio tour will be held Aug. 31 and Sept. 1 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
“The Studio Tour has an educational focus. Participating artists have work in progress and visitors are encouraged to enter the process by observing and asking questions,” Hucko said.
Dead Horse Point State Park is located nine miles north of Moab on U.S. 191 and 23 miles south on state Route 313. The visitors center is open daily from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Park admission is $10. For more information, contact the park at 435-259-2614.
