"Featuring a range of fine art and craft by both emerging and established artists, the tour gives attendees the opportunity to discover and purchase amazing pieces of art and get a glimpse inside studios and homes that are just as unique as the individuals who live and work in them," said Heather Hoggan, of the Arroyo Arts Collective.

Went to the preview party at Future Studio last Saturday and enjoyed many works especially a piece by Christopher Pate. Very interested to see more.

Did the tour and think the collective should screen the participants. Someone was selling clothes on the tour, a jeweler was selling Murano glass which comes from Italy so she didn't make it (c'mon), so kinda bummed that we wasted time driving all over the place, finding parking, when we expected to see art. Too many people on the tour list too!! Collective...whittle the list down and cut down on retail vendors who just wanted to shop their wares.
