Mark the date! The Sixth Annual SouthEast Iowa Artists' Studio Tour will be held the
weekend of Saturday, October 18, 2014 open 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. and Sunday, October 19,
2014 open Noon - 4 p.m.
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 Washington County Riverboat
Foundation for the generous donation that was awarded our organization. Their contribution
makes 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. This mini grant will make it possible for the
purchase of new event signage and advertising to promote our event which we would not have
been able to achieve otherwise.
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 43 participating
artists for the 2014 tour.
The brochure for the 2014 Southeast Iowa Artist Studio Tour event is available online
