Helen Phillips, Tour Founder

Helen Phillips founded the Tour 29 years ago in order to connect artists with each other and with the public, to share artistic processes, and sell art. Many artists have launched careers over the years through Tour participation.

Tour Guides with Map and Artist Locations will be distributed to all participating galleries and many other locations in mid-September, and will be available at the Taste of the Tour Preview Show and Reception.

Please mark your calendar for the Taste of the Tour Preview Show at Blue Line Arts November 4-20, where work from all participating artists will be on display, and the Taste of the Tour Reception at Blue Line Arts on November 5 from 5:00 to 8:00pm.
