Art Briefs

Call to artists for studio tour
    Working artists are invited to submit an application for participation in a fall studio tour dedicated to showcase the creative community in the Wood River Valley.
    The deadline for a postmarked application is May 31.
    Wood River Valley Studio Tour Inc. is an Idaho nonprofit organization aimed at inspiring regional and out-of-state vistiors to travel to the valley to experience first-hand the quality of locally produced art. Brooke Bonner, director and co-owner of Green Antelope Gallery in Bellevue, and Suzanne Hazlett, of Sazu Studio, collaborated to start the tour in fall 2012.
    Applicants must maintain a working art studio in the Wood River Valley and those artists who are accepted are expected to have completed a body of work representing a cohesive, visual art form, with professional execution. These forms include ceramics, drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, video and filmmaking.
    The registration fee is $100 by or before the deadline. Extended registration is June 1-21 and the fee will then be $150. Any artist who secures a corporate or individual sponsor donation for $500 or more can request sponsor information packets.
    For more information and applications, visit or call 725-0600.
