Park County Studio Tour
As referenced by the Danforth Gallery
Twenty-four artists from Park County, Montana will open their studios this fall as part of the Annual Park County Studio Tour. Spearheaded by the Park County Friends of the Arts/Danforth Gallery in Livingston, the tour will be held September 26th and 27th from 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM.
The 2-day event will be a self-guided tour and the participating public will be treated to a behind-the scenes glimpse into the creative work spaces of area artists. Artists will be on hand to visit and answer questions. An array of original artwork will be available for purchase during the tour and there will be refreshments provided at many of the studios.
Event coordinator Brad Bunkers is delighted by the large number of artists participating in this year’s tour, “The response from artists has been strong… we have such a variety of talented artists representing all of Park County. From barn studios in Paradise Valley to lofts in downtown Livingston and workshops outside Wilsall, we have an impressive lineup of the area’s best artists working in a variety of mediums.”
