Covered Bridge Studio Art Tour« Back to Events
Enjoy this once-a-year chance to get an up close and personal look at some of Southeastern Wisconsin’s finest artists and the spaces in which they work. Presented by the Cedarburg Artists Guild, the Covered Bridge Art Studio Tour is celebrating 39 years of offering art enthusiasts a chance to visit the studio spaces of 50 members. Visit the studios and get a glimpse into their creative process. The art tour is always held on the second full weekend of October, so here in 2021 it runs Friday, October 8th through Sunday, October 10th. The artists will be creating art during the event and are happy to explain their artistic process and inspirations.
The Tour is FREE. Your tour begins anywhere YOU want to visit. No tickets, No reservations.
Plan your own tour itinerary! Opt for a rural drive between locations encompassing the fall splendor of rural Wisconsin: Farm fields, pumpkin patches, Lake Michigan shoreline, picturesque small towns and even an historic wooden covered bridge. Or, if you aren’t in the mood for a leisurely drive, there is easy access between most of the spaces. The studio spaces are as unique and varied as the art. A spare bedroom in a suburban ranch home, an industrial garage, a 19th century barn, an 1850‘s stone mill, a walkout basement, or a tent are all creative spaces where sculpture, jewelry, photography, pottery, blacksmithing, woodworking, weaving, stain glass, encaustics, collage, prints, paintings in all mediums and styles, and fiber arts are brought to life. This is your chance to purchase a unique piece of art directly from the artist along with its “story of creation”. Please be prepared to wear a mask in some of their spaces.
Highway 57’s historic route (now Green Bay Road and Washington Streets) cut right through Cedarburg; Highway 60 is just to the north and Highway 181 is just to the west. I-43 is several miles east; use County C or W to access Cedarburg from there!
