This is a self-guided tour though scenic towns and countryside where artists open their
studios to the public for behind-the-scenes experiences. You will see unique artwork in
Des Moines, Henry, Lee, Washington and Van Buren counties. A variety of art will also be
available for purchase in every price range.
The Southeast Iowa Artist Studio Tour would like to thank the 2016 Sponsors
for their generous donations. Their contributions
make it possible for the artists of the SEIAST to once again open up their studios to the public
to show what wonderful talent there is locally.
Previously, Iowa Public Television attended the tour, stopping at
several studios to film artist demonstrations for the television program "Simple Pleasures",
episode #505. We are certainly honored by Iowa Public Television's support and
thrilled for the great boost for our event! www.iptv.org
Tour organizers are very pleased to announce that this year we have 32 participating
artists for the 2016 tour.
The 2016 Southeast Iowa Artist Studio Tour brochure will be available online soon.
