/ Articles / Northwoods Summer Art Tour this weekend
The artist members of the 21st annual Northwoods Art Tour will welcome visitors in a variety of ways this July 24, 25 and 26. The 39 studios and three guest artists each made individual decisions regarding their ability to safely be open to the public during the current COVID-19 pandemic, tour organizers said in a press release. Eighteen studios will be open as usual; seven will be open by appointment; six will be closed, but offer online options for viewing and sales; 11 will be closed for the summer tour, the release states.
Open studios will welcome visitors from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. A status list of all the studios with links to their contact information including webpages is available at www.northwoodsarttour.com. Because tour members value and respect their visitors, all open studios and galleries will be following recommended safety guidelines. Visitors should be prepared to wear masks and observe social distancing conventions. The tour is self-guided. Visitors select which studios to visit based on their interests and time.
Colorful brochures featuring each studio with driving directions, contact information and a map are available at area Chambers of Commerce and brochure racks at many area businesses and on the tour’s website. Because brochures were printed early in the year, a list of the open status of each studio is only available at www.northwoodsarttour.com.
