SOUTH NEWFANE- Rock River Artists’ 25th annual Open Studio Tour is slated for Saturday and Sunday, July 15 and July 16, from 10 am to 6 pm. A tour that has earned its following well beyond southern Vermont, the annual two-day offering features 16 accomplished artists in a range of media from functional ceramics to thread on fabric.

RRA’s Open Studio Tour allows visitors to get a behind-the-scenes look into the unique locations where each artist works, in rustic studios down county lanes, high up in the hills with spectacular views, amidst lush gardens and landscaping, and tucked away in the woods, along the river’s edge.

Visitors are encouraged to start their RRA Open Studio Tour at the Old Schoolhouse in South Newfane village where participating artists present a group show. A classic 19th-century structure, which formerly housed the village one-room school, the Schoolhouse itself is well worth the visit. There one can pick up a map of artists’ locations and begin a self-guided tour of the studios, all within short driving distance. Admission is free all weekend.

Artists on the 2017 tour include Rob Cartelli, functional pottery; Ellen Darrow, pottery; Dan Dewalt, custom furniture; Chris Ericsson, furniture and jewelry; Georgie, oil painting; Richard Foye, raku pottery; Richard Gillis, wrought iron work; Caryn King, painting; Steven Meyer, painting; Leonard Ragouzeos, painting and drawing; Lauri Richardson, mosaics; Roger Sandes, painting and prints; Deidre Scherer, thread on fabric; Matthew Tell, pottery; Christine Triebert, photography; and Mary Welsh, collage.
