Art Harvest Tour returns for fifth year Sept. 29-30

Submitted to The Chief

The fifth annual Art Harvest Tour will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 29 and Sunday, Sept. 30. The event is a free studio tour of central Iowa artists held annually the last full weekend in September. Enjoy the beautiful fall weather and scenery as you visit the studios and galleries of the area’s best artists. In addition to enjoying the studios, you’ll see a much wider selection of the artists work, and great prices and specials too.

There will be a dozen stops on the approximately 90-mile loop around the beautiful Des Moines River Valley. Several locations will be hosting multiple artists. This lets us include artists without sufficient studio space to host, as well as keeping the number of stops manageable so you can do the tour in a few hours.

Artists will be located at various stops in Perry, Woodward, Ames, Boone and Ogden. The Perry stops include Mary Rose Collection, Perry Perk and Betsy Peterson Designs.

Other sights right on the route include the High Trestle Bridge near Madrid, the Hotel Pattee in Perry and more. For a map and more information, visit the Facebook event, Art Harvest Tour 2018.
