Artists encouraged to register for 15th Annual Artisans Road Trip 

The 15th Annual Artisans Road Trip is seeking artists for the coming year.

President Haley McAndrews says the studio tour features artists from across Northwest Iowa. 

"The Artisans Road Trip is held the second weekend in October every year, and it's basically a big open studio and gallery tour.  So the artists who participate, they will set up either at a local gallery, or in their studio, or in another artist's studio, and they do demonstrations, they set up their art work and they can sell work, they can talk to people.  For people who go on the Road Trip, it doesn't cost anything.  You can get your hands on a brochure or you can look on our website."

She notes that the deadline for applications if February 16th.  

"You can download it and print it off, and it just needs to be postmarked by February 16, so our deadline is coming up pretty quick.  But, brand new this year, we have the option of emailing in the images.  So, you to submit 3 images along with your application.  You can go ahead and email it in, which makes it a lot easier than having to send a disc or a drive."
