ART Studio Tour w-Art Explorers--Day 2 of 2
This year I'm doing both days in the first weekend. They will be continuing it the weekend after Thanksgiving if you'd rather go then on your own. RSVP ONLY IF YOU PLAN TO CARPOOL/CARAVAN WITH US ON THIS DAY! Please change your yes to NO when your plans change so we are not waiting for you. Trip 2 of 2: > We will meet at 9:15 am in the parking lot in front of the designated meeting place. We will spend the day visiting the art studios along CAVE CREEK RD, eat lunch at a studio (bring your lunch with you). We'll plan our day together - plan on visiting about 8-12 stops with 30-50+ artists! And yes, we do have time to savor the art and enjoy the nibbles, and each other's company - we just do it very efficiently! > We can carpool AND/OR caravan! Last year about 10 of us stayed together most of the day! We had an exceptionally terrific time! Join us when you can, leave when you need to. I'll give my phone # to the RSVP list the day prior to keep in touch. 44 Studios featuring 174 artists is a must do for serious collectors, art affectionados, and artists needing inspiration! In its 22nd year, this tour is long-anticipated for art appreciators and buyers alike. Two weekends, 3 days/weekend, Fri-Sun from 10 am -5 pm. What I like most about it is being able to see world-class artists in their creative setting, be it a separate studio, or a home studio -- the natural desert setting in CaveCreek/Carefree is....SO Arizona...SO Southwest....I love the smell of the desert, the cactus and desert shrubs, and the birds and natural habitat that coexist there! It's really nice to talk with the artists and gain insight into their philosophies and even techniques of how they do their art. A map will be sent to you to look at. Real maps can be picked up at the studios. It's going to be a FUN day with GORGEOUS weather! Come with us and have fun bonding with members, seeing great art, and enjoying our great Southwest in fabulous weather! If you need a ride or can offer a ride, post a comment below. Those who want to carpool/caravan will meet at 9:15 am and we'll go over the map. Tour #1 to different artists on Saturday November 18th is HERE. https://www.meetup.com/Art-Explorers/events/255428677/. >>> PLEASE ANSWER THE RSVP QUESTION TO RECEIVE EMAILS FROM ME WITH THE MEETING MAP AND DIRECTIONS! I will send my phone # to RSVP's the day prior to keep in touch.

What we're about

Welcome to Art Explorers Meetup, where we gleefully EXPOSE you to Art & Culture! Explore your Creative side with our Community! Just an art lover? Welcome! A closet artist? Terrific! A practicing artist? Excellent!

As of April 1, 2018, it is FREE to join our group! However, we have also reduced the number of events per month to about 4. If you would like more events, please contact Kaz about volunteering to host some for us.

NOTE: WE DO NOT TOLERATE ANYONE SENDING PERSONAL MESSAGES TO ANYONE IN OUR GROUP WITHOUT THEIR PRIOR PERMISSION! YOU WILL BE BANNED FOR SUCH ACTIONS. WE WISH THIS GROUP TO BE A SAFE PLACE FOR ALL TO ENJOY THE ARTS! WE ARE NOT A DATING OR PICKUP GROUP!!!

No matter if you are an experienced artist or a no-experience art enthusiast, we explore and engage in a wide variety of 1-4 or so monthly art and cultural venues and happenings around the valley, AZ, neighboring states, and Internationally. Look back at some of our 1000+ meetups that we’ve done in the past 4 years to understand what we’re about, and check the many reviews of our members – it all speaks volumes about our friendly group!

If you’re interested in our PRIVATE Select Events Community, please go to: https://www.meetup.com/ArtExplorersAZ . Our objective is not to fill your social itinerary, but to enrich it with 5-10 per month very unique art outings and culturally stimulating events. Most events will be free, but some may be ticketed events for which we will strive to get group rates.

If you’re interested in joining our Art League (for most genres of artists and art appreciators), check out the Free version at https://www.meetup.com/VCAS-Meetup where we post many Calls for Artists, Artist Receptions, and other opportunities and events. The FULL version is at htps://ValleyCulturalArtSociety.com with all the benefits of a real Art League, including a visible portfolio, and a member of the Arizona Art Alliance. Monthly events will have a variety of arts, including music, dance, spoken word, art critiquing, mini-workshops and learning sessions, and a culinary experience!
