This weekend, April 26 to 28, area artists will open the doors to their creative spaces for a behind-the-scenes studio view not usually offered to the general public. During this annual self-guided event, these accomplished artists will be displaying their work, demonstrating their processes and selling pottery, paintings, turned wood items, jewelry, fiber arts and more.

Tour participants can set their own pace while driving through the scenic hills and valleys of southeastern Minnesota and northeastern Iowa.

Tour coordinator Sue Pariseau said, “The Bluff Country Studio Art Tour is free to the public, so don’t miss this treasure filled spring adventure to see the places where art is made.”

Participating studios, galleries and shared spaces are open Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Tour brochures can be found at participating locations, the Winona Visitors Centers, Lanesboro Visitors Center, Lanesboro Arts or may be requested using the contact form on the website.
