Lebanon Valley Arts Tour

Each year on the first weekend of November, about thirty artists in the Lebanon Valley open their studios and galleries to the public. The Art Studio Tour began in 1999 “to educate and bring awareness to our community about our artists.” It was organized by four local artists, Shelby Applegate, Sylvia Lehman, Rachael Bryce, and Beverlee Lehr, who patterned it after a similar tour in Elora, Ontario.

The tour is now in its fourteenth year, and remains committed to promoting outstanding Lebanon Valley artists and educating members of the community about fine arts and crafts. Only individuals who have presented their work for review by a jury committee and have demonstrated that they create high quality original work are invited to participate. While many of us offer our work for sale during the tour, we encourage dialogue about our work and are eager to share our knowledge and demonstrate our skills.

This year on November 3rd and 4th, artists and craftsmen will again invite visitors into their studios and galleries. Information about the 2012 free driving tour of Central Pennsylvania artists’ studios and galleries will be available on our website in the future. In the meantime, please visit our website at lvarttour if you would like to view work from last year’s tour. Soon, you will also be able to “Like” us on Facebook.
