Southeastern Delaware Artists Studio Tour set
The Southeastern Delaware Artists Studio Tour will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Friday, Nov. 27, and Saturday, Nov. 28. Each of the 15 participating artists will be available to tourgoers each day.
Once again, the tour's Art in the Hat raffle will support art education programs. Items in the raffle are original or limited-edition artworks donated by each artist.
The raffle tickets sell for $5 each or five for $20 and will be available at each artist's studio.
To date, SEDAST has given $50,930 to Indian River School District art programs. The artists reached out to every school in the district earlier this year to ask them to submit a request for funds. Five teachers have submitted requests which total around $3,200. The goal is to have the checks in the art teacher's hands by the time the holiday recess arrives.
Tour goers buying raffle tickets indicate which piece of artwork they want, and Saturday, Nov. 28, the lucky winners are drawn and contacted by the artist to arrange pickup of their prize.
To learn more about SEDAST and its artists for 2015, go to www.ArtStudioTour.com. Brochures, which include a locator map for each artist, are available at their sponsor's locations and in more than 100 retail locations in Sussex County. They will also be available in each artist's studio during the tour.
