Chautauqua-Lake Erie Art Trail Open Studio Tour
Saturday, May 24, - Sunday, May 25, 2014   10am - 5pm

Location Chautauqua-Lake Erie Art Trail
Phone 716.224.3381

The Chautauqua-Lake Erie Art Trail, a free, open studio tour during which we invite you into our homes and studios to experience the places where we create art and to see our work for yourselves.

As artists, the work we do is always personal. Our life experiences serve as the foundation of everything we create. We extract ideas, visions, and dreams from our day-to-day lives. That energy becomes deeply embedded in our work. 

We draw our inspiration from one of the most picturesque regions of New York State. Come see what we see and love everyday the verdant vineyards and fields, the lush forests, the rolling hills, and the spectacular Lake Erie.

Our art encompasses many disciplines: painting, photography, ceramics, sculpture, and textiles. All of it is a creative response to the beauty that surrounds us in Chautauqua County.

Visit to see additional images of our work, background information and directions to our studios.
