The Studio Tour is a scenic, drive-yourself tour, on curvy, hilly roads, through lush valleys and along ridge-tops, with views that go for miles. Many artists are tucked away on gravel roads. Please drive cautiously. When in doubt concerning road conditions, drive slower than you normally would and tip the car-wash guys when you get done.

The Artist order is designed to provide the least amount of congestion as you travel. Feel free to follow the order or strike out on your own art adventure!

UPDATE 10.6.2016 (information also on directions)

1. There is an extra #20 dot on the map. Please disregard the one by Freeport. Go to exhibiting #20 which is the studio of Kimberly Bosworth, north of Decorah on the Locust Road/W38, per directions, address and GPS listed.
2. GPS does not give accurate directions to #25 Lee Zieke and Lindsay Lee, follow these directions.
3. Linda Ravenwind will not be exhibiting at location #29.

Print the following PDF’s out to help find your way as GPS does not work in many of our beautiful back-road locations. The map in the brochure is also accurate and drawn to scale, though the map does omit some roads, due to space constraints.
