Little Spokane River Artist Studio Tour Moves Online This Year
The 13th Annual Little Spokane River Artist Studio Tour will move online this year because of Covid-19, with the virtual show opening on Saturday, September 26, at 8:00 a.m., LSRAST Co-Founder Gina Freuen announced today. Over three dozen, well-known, regional artists are participating. "While we will all miss having the show set in the picturesque Little Spokane River Valley this year, fantastic artwork will still be available online," Freuen said. The decision to move online was difficult, Freuen added, but it was made to safeguard the artists and art collectors.
The show will be available online at https://www.LittleSpokaneStudios.com, where visitors will find links directly to their favorite artist, along with the ability to visit other artists, as well. "Art lifts the spirit and those who visit this year's show will see original artwork from professional artists that celebrates, reflects and inspires our world," said Freuen.
A special feature of this year's show will be a signed, limited edition, poster created by renowned oil painter and Little Spokane River Tour Artist and Group Manager, Victoria Brace. A total of only 50 signed posters will be available for $50 each, and net proceeds from sales will be donated to Spokane Public Radio. The original artwork this year showcases nine artistic expressions: painters; jewelers; potters; photographers; 2D mixed media; 3D mixed media and sculpture; glass, wood and stone; fiber, and leather. Artist Victoria Brace created this year's show poster, and only 50 signed, limited edition, prints will be available. The artists appearing in the 2020 Little Spokane River Artist Studio Tour come from Spokane, Loon Lake, Deer Park, Evans, Vashon Island, Sequim, Underwood, Washington; as well as Beaverton, Oregon; and, Kalispell and Missoula, Montana.
