(Spirit Lake)-It's the Artisans Road Trip this coming weekend, KUOO's Becky Thoreson has details:

16th Annual Artisans Road Trip October 12-13 

The 16th Annual Artisans Road Trip will be held on October 12 and 13 across Northwest Iowa.

President Haley McAndrews explains.  "It is a free, self-guided tour of local Artisan's work.  They're either set up in their own studios or at their homes or even local galleries.  For the people following The Road Trip, they can just pick up a map and pick which artists they want to visit throughout the weekend and just take their time heading out, learning about local artists, what kind of work they do, getting to meet the artists behind the work and again, it doesn't cost anything for people to stop by any of the studios that they want or all of them.  It's just a good, family-friendly art experience."

She adds that 26 Artists will be participating this year.  "From Estherville all the way down to Storm Lake is where the studios and galleries are.  Drawings, photography, wood turning, pastels, paintings, potters, a very wide variety.  There is definitely something that would appeal to everybody."

The Artisans Road Trip will run from 9-5 on Saturday, and noon-5 on Sunday.  Brochures are available at local businesses and galleries.

PLEASE NOTE:  Beth Cathcart will not be available at her home studio, but her work may be viewed at McGee Gallery in Peterson, Iowa.
