Mark your calendars for the First Ever Spring Fling Studio Tour on April 7-8, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.! This free self-guided tour is like our Fall Studio Tour which has become an anticipated event for art lovers since it began in 2007 and we are anticipating that this Spring Fling Studio Tour will become popular as well. The tours allow you to visit many of the artists’ studios, which are close to each other scattered in front of the awesome Superstitions Mountains. The juried artists offer their creativity in Clay, Fabric, Glass, Gourds, Jewelry, Painting, Photography, Pottery, Sculpture, Wood, and more. This gives you a wonderful time to just relax and spend the weekend in the Gold Canyon/Apache Junction area, driving roads less traveled, visiting studios, meeting with the artists, and watching them demonstrate their creativity. While visiting each studio, take some time to really see the art works these artists create, and you might find a special piece that speaks to you.
The Superstition Mountains have inspired people for many years in different ways. The Tonto National Forest brings with it not only saguaros, but a wide variety of wildlife that freely roam the area which many artists include in their art.
This year’s tour is expected to feature 58 artists in 18 studios!
Maps are available from the Chamber of Commerce of Apache Junction/Gold Canyon; Canyon Rose Storage and Visitors Center at 6405 S. Kings Ranch Road; at our new Information Booth at Studio 1 in Apache Junction as well as the AOTS website: www.artistsofthesuperstitions.com. The map includes the addresses of each studio on the tour, the names of the artists, and each artist’s special medium.
