The Tour

Step through the door into an artist’s private studio and you will see that artist’s mind at work.  It’s an incredible once-a-year opportunity for avid collectors and anyone who is curious about the art-making process.

A glance around a studio is enormously informative. You will see what tools the artist reaches for. You may see swatches that have been chosen for a fiber arts project; the latest experimental combination of color and texture; even older work tucked away in a dusty corner.  Go ahead, ask:

  • “why is that clipping taped to the wall?”
  • “why do you use terra cotta instead of white clay?”
  • “how do you decide to use a piece of lace in a mixed media work instead of crinkled paper?”
  • “why does that image of a red thread emerge in so many paintings?”…

BOSCO artists are happy to share stories about their work and the unexpected directions their artistic journey has taken them in.  Things you might never learn about during a gallery visit or by reading an artist’s biography.

Most BOSCO artists work in studios located in or close to their homes.   Be it in the heart of downtown or around the bend and up the hill, each studio is a bright spot of inspiration and productivity. A thoroughly intriguing place to visit.  We look forward to welcoming you to our favorite places, our studios.

Our next tour is October 12-13, 2013.  Preview BOSCO member artists’ work by visiting our artists’ pages or their own websites, simply click on and artist’s name in the list below to get started.
