2021 Art Supporter Information Deadline for the Brochure Has Passed The final deadline was July 12, 2021
Art Supporters are businesses and individuals who purchase a listing or ad in the Studio Tour brochure and on the Tour website to promote their business.
While the deadline for inclusion in the 2021 Studio Tour brochure has passed, we are happy to include new Art Supporters on the Art Supporter page of the Tour website. Their information will remain on the Tour website for 1 year and they will be given the opportunity to receive a discount of 10% for an ad or listing for the 2022 Tour.
The money received from Art Supporters provides the necessary funds to ensure the Tour has an ample publicity budget to draw visitors. We strongly encourage each artist to get at least one Art Supporter from among the businesses they routinely use as well as friends and family. In past years, several artists have purchased a personal listing or ad.
Print both the letter and form and take with you as you talk to potential Art Supporters. It is also helpful to have a copy of last year’s brochure to show potential Art Supporters how ads/listings look, the variety of art available during the Tour and the quality of printing. Leave a rack card with them as a reminder of the Tour.
