Helen Phillips, Tour Founder

Helen Phillips founded the Tour 31 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 October 21-Nov. 19 and the Taste of the Tour Reception on Saturday, November 4, both at Blue Line Arts.
