Summary of the Events:
Tour D’Arts is a self-guided tour of artists’ studios/venues in the Tri-Cities and surrounding area.
The focus of the tour is to promote and sell the work of local artists. In addition, we hope to familiarize the public with local artists and their work.
The tour is open to all artists residing in the 509-area code.
To facilitate a well-attended show, the tour is providing additional opportunities for the artists to display their work including at the Richland Public Library and at one of Cyber Arts’ four curated art
shows at local businesses.
October 1- 21 Promotion at the Richland Library
Artists can display their work at the Richland Public Library for 15 days prior to the tour. Your art, your name and venue location, will be on display along with maps and information for the tour. We will have places for both 2D and small 3D objects. We are not allowed to have prices on the objects but will note that all items can be purchased from the artist. We strongly recommend that you take this opportunity to show your work. Out of town artists should arrange with the tour director (Pam Sharp) to deliver their art for display. Artists will bring their work to the library on October 1 at 10:00 am and will pick up their work at 10:00 am on October 15. If the artists cannot pick up the work please make arrangements with the Tour Director at firstname.lastname@example.org
Because we have a certain space to fill at the library, you will be notified prior to the event how many pieces of art you can show.
Please note, if you sign up for the Library show you must deliver work. Artists that sign up for the library show and do not show up or make arrangements with the show director may be subject to a $25.00 fee to cover costs.
Thursday, October 21 Sneak Peek Night:
All artists are required to participate in an opening invitational gala at Tucannon Winery, 40504 Demoss Rd., Benton City, WA 99320, from 5 pm to 8 pm This event is held in the Tucannon Sugar Pine Barn.
Each artist will have space to display a limited amount of art (space will be determined by the number of artists participating in the Tour).
2D artists will have a minimum of one 3’wide by 6’ high ProPanel.
3D artists will have a minimum of 36 sq. ft. display space. Each 3D artist will need to bring their own pedestals or table.
Artists shall be set up at Tucannon by 4:30 p.m.
Complementary light hors d’oeuvres; no-host wine and a no-host food truck are available.
This event is to gather the artists so we can all see each other’s work and an appreciation gala for your patrons. Postcards will be available for you to send to your patrons and supporters. Sales are encouraged at the gala, so have extra work available if the patron wants to take your work home.
We know that sometimes artists have emergencies that may preclude them from being able to attend the gala. However, your art MUST be at the show. If you are experiencing an emergency please contact the show director and make arrangements for your delivery and pick-up of your art.
This is our opening event and to not have a full slate reflects badly on the show and on the commitment of the artists to maintain a professional appearance.
