15th Annual Wake Forest Area Artists’ Studio Tour takes place Sept. 25 & 26 and again on Oct. 2 & 3, 2010

Sunday, August 22nd, 2010

First off, this Wake Forest is not to be confused with Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, NC. This Wake Forest is the town just northeast of Raleigh, NC. There was a Wake Forest College, but that’s another story. So these artists are competing for attention with the art community of the Triangle – Raleigh, Durham & Chapel Hill. They could use our help and they have it. Also, the tour will travel to artists’ studios in Wakefield, Rolesville, Youngsville, Franklinton, Knightdale, Zebulon and areas north of I-540.

Here’s what they sent and some:


Meet the artists and see the unique talent that the Wake Forest area has to offer during the 15th Annual Wake Forest Area Artists’ Studio Tour, taking place on Sept. 25 & 26 and again on Oct. 2 & 3, 2010. The tour last both weekends from 10am-5pm on Saturdays, and 1-5pm on Sundays.

Come see where these artists work, many in their private home studio settings. Visit as they demonstrate their craft and explain the process of getting to that final unique state that we call fine art.

The brochure for the 15th Annual Wake Forest Area Artists’ Studio Tour will be available at all artists’ studios and at several downtown Wake Forest locations including Sunflower Studio and Gallery, 214 E. Jones Ave., and the Wake Forest College Birthplace, 450 N. Main St., where visitors can view a sample of each artists’ work, so they can plan which studios they would like to visit.
