The Studio ARTour is a co-operative venture among a group of artists. We open our studios to the public and invite you to come out and see where and how we work. Most studios have several artists working in different media. The artists are glad to answer questions and provide information about the art. Some studios have demonstrations.
The range of work is amazing; weaving to welding, glass to gemstones, clay to carving – and paper in between. Whether you are a long-time collector, or are just looking for something unique, the studio tour is a perfect way to shop for fine art, and best of all the tour is free!
Bob Brocken has made handmade ceramic fish wall hangings for almost 10 years. He began his journey in clay with a family tile business. As a child he was fascinated by fish. Serendipitously, his two loves merged.
Sue Pariseau is a studio potter creating functional stoneware for everyday use and enjoyment in Southeastern Minnesota. Sue believes there is no greater respect you can show to those who grow, raise and produce our foods than to present those foods in a pleasing, beautiful way on our table.
Patsy Dew is a photographer. Her camera helps her play with the visual wonders of light, pattern, and passage through time. She also creates artist-books, boxes, and greeting cards using her images.
