Art Tours

In researching artists for The Heart of the Artist web page, I have been meeting exciting, talented artists.  Getting to know them and chatting about their inspirations has been a wonderful experience.  In order to share this with the fans of The Heart of the Artist, I came up with the concept of hosting art tours, and our first tour will be June 4, 5, and 6.  We’ll tour the WAV, Working Artists in Ventura, project that I blogged about a few weeks ago, and we’ll meet Teal Rowe, the glass artist I blogged about.  In addition, we’ll visit the Bell Arts Factory complex of studios and galleries, we will visit Stoneworks Studios, Firehouse Galleries, and visit the studios of artist/photographer Valerie Lewis and sculptor Sandy Wolk. And there will be more opportunities in store!

I hope you will consider joining us for this tour.  You can sign up at http://www.theheartoftheartist.com/art-tours/


We are also planning future tours in Santa Barbara and Santa Cruz.  If you know artists there you’d like us to contact, please let us know.  And let us know of other places you would like us to lead tours to!  This will be an exciting venture for all involved, and we look forward to your pariticpation.

Be sure to sign up for this blog by entering your email in the Newsletter sign up box in the column on your left.  And let me know of topics you’d like me to address or artists or mediums you’d like me to research.  This blog is for you!

  • Hi Emily, I just saw your flyer at My Florist Cafe and I would like to tall to you about including the Artists’ Union Gallery as a part of your tour. There is an event First Fridays Ventura that takes place on June 4th that would add to your Friday experience. I have Sylvia Raz a very prominent Ojai studio tour artists scheduled to give a talk at our gallery the day. This would be a natural for your event. Please contact me.

    Art Tours sounds like such a great idea!

    This weekend I went to the Art Walk at the Brewery in Los Angeles. I find it is such a creative boost to look in on other artist’s workspaces.

    This website looks very interesting, I hope I can learn more about how to blog!

  • Great site! I’m a artist as well (musician) and I have realized that art and music go hand in hand. It’s very interesting to see the different approaches people take when they create their art.

    The tour is a good idea because it opens our minds and eyes to different forms and interpretations of art. Unfortunately, I cannot attend, but I would love to see pictures and reviews of the tours and pieces of art.

  • Alexander Neyman:

    I have always been fascinated by many artists. When I was younger, my parents would take me to many art museums. I always enjoyed these trips and gained a lot of knowledge about different works of art. I also had the opportunity to go to a Salvador Dali art exhibit in Prague, Czech Republic. The experience was amazing and I developed a whole new outlook on art. Therefore, Salvador Dali is one of my favorite artists. I appreciate that his art, is always creative and no two are alike.
