What other event in lower De. gives you the chance to see 7 different styles of paintings, a glass blower, a wood turner, 2 different styles of hand crafted jewelry, a stain glass creator, an artist who creates “one of a kind” furniture and an artist who works in clay? The South Eastern De. Artist Studio Tour (aka SEDAST) provides that opportunity and more! This unique tour allows you to visit the artists in their studios and watch them create their art.
This year the 23rd SEDAST event will take place on November 24th and 25th from 10 am to 4 pm. The free self- guided tour allows you the flexibility of visiting as many or as few of the artists you want but you are sure to want to see them all after your first stop!
Also, in conjunction with the tour, each artist has donated a piece of art for the “Art in the Hat” raffle. 100% of the proceeds from the raffle benefit art programs in the schools throughout the local community. These proceeds help the art departments provide a special art project for their students or just provide supplies they did not have the funds for before the raffle.
For more information, brochures which include a map of the tour are available at one of the tour’s sponsors-Gallery One, The Ellen Rice Gallery and Ocean Vayu Yoga in Ocean View and Jayne’s Reliables located in Dagsboro. The brochures will also be at many local retail establishments around the area and if you are out of town, visit www.artstudiotour.com for the brochure information.
Local art galleries and unique retail shops will be having Open Houses in conjunction with SEDAST so it is a time to come and enjoy lots of art and maybe get a jump on Holiday shopping!
