Hopefully, you read in your October Advocate about the White Rock Lake Artist Studio Tour to take place this Saturday, Oct. 18, at studios all around the White Rock area. Now in it's 16th year, the tour is chock-full of funky and fabulous participants — 45 of them. Here is the official list along with a bit about the studio tour tradition, details on this weekend's event and a lot about local art, in general.
Speaking of neighborhood artists, many of the same artists involved in the studio tour are also part of an awesome art garden at the State Fair this year — the organizer of the State Fair show, Lottie Minick, maintains an informative and spirited blog that follows the art/gardening/etc. scene around the 'hood.
By the way, don't forget that the State Fair ends Sunday, Oct. 19. If you haven't seen Big Tex yet, you'd better get there in a hurry!
