For the past 16 years, Arvada artists have been inviting the community into their studios for a glimpse of their creative process. This year, more than 20 artists will do it again during the 16th annual Arvada Art Studio tour held Sept. 23 and 24.
“It’s a great way to talk to the artists and get original art at a fraction of the cost,” said Mary Fedje, owner of Light Rail Gallery in Olde Town, which also features artists during the event.
The studios on the tour run the full range from corners of back bedrooms to large dedicated buildings.
“When the creative urge strikes, artists will take over any available space to work,” said Judy Gardner, an organizer of the event.
Artists also range in medium from Gardner, who is created projects with 3-D printed florals to Jake Groenhof, who explores experimental photographing processes. Watercolorists, medalists, woodworkers and painters are also represented.
“I think it’s really important for artists to be able to show what they’re doing and share with other people,” Gardner said. “It helps the people in the city connect with artists in the community.”
Gardner said she enjoys the tour because it gives her a chance to share her work and also give back to the community.
“I love it when people come by the studio and I’m doing unusual things with 3-D printing and laser cutting,” she said. “It’s fun to see people engage with it for the first time.”
