Our Doors Are Open!
MOTHER’S DAY WEEKEND
Saturday and Sunday May 13 & 14, 2017 10 AM – 5 PM
The Placitas Studio Tour has become a favorite Mother’s Day weekend event in the twenty years since it first began. Fifty-nine Placitas artists open their doors and welcome you to the fascinating spaces where the artwork takes shape. Explore the many unique artist studios in the rolling foothills of the northern Sandias. Take this opportunity to meet and talk directly with the artists about their work, their environment, and their latest creations.
Sponsored by the Placitas Mountain Craft & Soiree Society, the tour offers a wide array of fine arts and crafts at the fifty studio locations. Painting, wearable art, photography, ceramics, batik, woodworking, glass art, jewelry, mosaics, sculptures, metalwork, mixed media and more will all be available. Enjoy the magnificent views of the Sandia Mountains and the natural beauty of Placitas as you visit your favorite local artists and meet new ones.
Placitas is located in the Sandia Mountains off I-25 between Albuquerque and Santa Fe. From I-25, take Exit #242 and turn east on Highway 165 to Placitas. Visit the tour website at www.PlacitasStudioTour.com to download the map and preview the artists. Maps will also be available at studios and numbered signs will be posted throughout Placitas to direct you to studio locations.
