CREEDE— The Creede Arts Council (CAC) and area artists are proud to present the 16th Annual Silver Thread Studio Tour on Saturday, Aug. 10 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Discover the world of artists of South Fork and Creede as they open their studios to friends, old and new.
Take a self-guided driving tour along the beautiful Silver Thread Scenic Byway in the San Juan Mountains of southern Colorado. Artists’ studios are located from South Fork through historic Creede and along the route towards the Studios at Bristol. Enjoy a beautiful drive through the mountains and the incredible range of artistic talent in our area. Local artists will welcome visitors into their home studios and galleries, where they will answer questions, share techniques, perform demonstrations and showcase a variety of works available for purchase.
The Silver Thread Studio Tour will have 12 participating artists this year. The offerings include fiber arts, ceramics, wood, photography, jewelry, paintings, sculptures and fused glass. Many of the artists have national and international recognition in their respective fields.
Map brochures will be available at the Creede/Mineral County Chamber of Commerce, the Studios at Bristol and the South Fork Visitors Center. You may also view and print the map brochure from the CAC website at www.creedeartscouncil.com.
