Artists from around Madison County will have a chance to show off their work next weekend during the 16th ArtEast Studio Tour, sponsored by Jacoby Arts Center. Dozens of artists will be featured at nearly 40 locations centering around Alton and Edwardsville, including Jacoby. The tour is self guided, is free, and runs October 19 and 20 from 11am to 5pm.
Project coordinator Susan Bostwick says there are a number of artists who are opening up their personal space and Upper Alton will be a bit of a hub this year:
Tour stops in downtown Alton include the Jacoby Arts Center, Mississippi Mud Pottery and others, along with numerous locations in downtown Edwardsville and some in between.
