The Lakeside Artists Studio Tour is celebrating our 10th year of offering high quality original art directly from the artists.  We hope you will be interested in joining us!   We are looking for original art in every medium, last year we featured not only painters in several media, but also potters with many different styles, wood turners, a furniture maker, a handbag maker, jewelers, a metal sculptor and a mosaic artist. The tour is held in private homes and studios along the Brawley Peninsula, with the studio owner along with guest artists exhibiting at every location. 

Please share this information with any artist friends who may like to join in.This year’s dates are October 10, 2019 for set up and October 11-13 for the tour.
