Welcoming the 28th Annual Placer Artists Studios Tour

This free self-driving tour takes place on Veterans Day weekend, Friday, Nov. 12 through Sunday, Nov. 14 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. The Tour is divided into eight easily accessible regions, making weekend planning easy.

This much-loved fall tour is a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with the artists who so richly translate their inspirations into myriad forms of art, such as sculpture, painting, jewelry, ceramics and fiber art. Many of the artists will be demonstrating their techniques and all enjoy engaging with visitors. Attendees may purchase original art, prints or art cards directly from the artists.
