Covered Bridge Art Studio Tour, a once-a-year chance to get an up close and personal look at some of Southeastern Wisconsin’s finest artists and the spaces in which they work. Presented by the Cedarburg Artists Guild, celebrating 40 years of offering art enthusiasts a chance to visit the studio spaces of 50+ members. The art tour is always held on the second full weekend of October, this year that is the weekend of October 7-9. The artists will be creating art during the event and are happy to explain their artistic process and inspirations.
Your tour begins anywhere YOU want to visit. No tickets, No reservations. We invite you to custom plan your own tour itinerary. Visitors can opt for a rural drive between locations encompassing the fall splendor of rural Wisconsin: Farm fields, pumpkin patches, Lake Michigan shoreline, picturesque small towns and even an historic wooden covered bridge. Or, if you aren’t in the mood for a leisurely drive, there is easy access between most of the spaces via expressways.
The studio spaces are as unique and varied as the art. A chicken coop, a spare bedroom in a suburban ranch home, an industrial garage, a 19th century barn, an 1850‘s stone woolen mill, a walkout basement, or a tent are all creative spaces where sculpture, jewelry, photography, pottery, blacksmithing, weaving, stain glass, encaustics, collage, prints, paintings in all mediums and styles, and fiber arts are brought to life. This is your chance to purchase a unique piece of art directly from the artist along with its “story of creation”.
