CALL FOR ARTISTS

2017 Western Loudoun Artists Studio Tour

Visual artists can apply online now for the 12th annual Western Loudoun Artists Studio Tour, to be held June 3 & 4, 2017.

Loudoun artists working in all visual media may apply to this juried event. Those selected will open their studios to the public for two full days, exposing their work to visitors from the metropolitan region. Last year’s tour brought over a thousand visitors into more than 30 studios, allowing artists to connect with a targeted audience, increasing their visibility and providing an opportunity to promote and share their work.

Professional and emerging visual artists whose studios in Western Loudoun County meet specified criteria may apply as Studio Artists. Loudoun artists who do not have a Western Loudoun studio suitable for visitors may apply as Guest Artists. Two- and three-dimensional work will be considered, including but not limited to painting, drawing, fiber art, wood, ceramics, photography, sculpture, and jewelry.

The deadline for submission is Wednesday, February 1, 2017, with no exceptions. Frequently asked questions and answers about participating on the tour can be found at www.wlast.org/artist-faqs.htm. The application form can be found at www.wlast.org/onlineentry.htm. All applications must be submitted using the online form. Applicants will be notified of their jurying status by February 15, 2017.

The Studio Tour promotes Loudoun art and artists while it draws attention to the county as a cultural and scenic destination. The tour is a joint project of Franklin Park Arts Center, Friends of Franklin Park Arts Center, and Round Hill Arts Center.
