“Cosmos” by Andrea Martin

Call to Galleries & Schools

Please join us for the 29th Annual Placer Artists Tour! 2021 was a success in our inaugural year as an independent organization. This year our goal is to achieve sustainability. In addition to artist studios, galleries and art schools are included in the tour. This year the Tour has been expanded to include an optional “Encore” weekend for those locations that wish to be open to the public two weekends. Fill out the application for the largest, longest-running regional tour from Lincoln to Colfax and be part of the action!

Galleries will receive a multitude of benefits from being on the tour!

  •  Foot traffic & increased awareness: Galleries on the Studios Tour can expect numerous tour-goers, many of whom may have been unaware of the gallery, to stop at the gallery during the tour.
  •  Social Media promotions to promote any tour-specific Exhibits and/or special offers.
  •  Special Featured Gallery listing on a Premium Tour Guide page.
  • An image with contact information along with the artists in the printed Tour Guide
  • A location on the regional and county wide maps in the printed Tour Guide and website
  • A presence on the website virtual guide with a live link to your gallery website
