White Rock Lake Artists Studio Tour 2013

Brad Ford Smith  White Rock Lake Artists Studio Tour
In 1992 three artists decided to organize a self guided studio tour of artists living in East Dallas. It went off so well they did it agin the next year. 21 years later the White Rock Lake Artists's Studio Tour is a 2 day event that showcases 40 artist's studios and 5 art centers. It covers over 30 art disciplines from kiln formed glass to custom furniture. From incised pottery to photography, and lets not forget painting, printmaking and sculpture.

I live almost in the heart of the WRLAST, and have enjoyed making friends with the artists in my neighborhood. By seeing how they set up their studios I learned a lot about space management and found new sources for supplies. Plus there is something special about seeing artwork and artists in their natural and very personal environments.

A few years back, after much prodding by artists friends I contacted WRLAST about joining the tour. After three years on the waiting list I am finally on the tour!!!

So here's some details:
