The studios will be open from 10 a.m. both days, and admission is free.
The tour is anchored in part by two sets of well-known Wisconsin artist couples, Jeff Noska and Barbara Reinhart and Tom Rauschke and Kaaren Wiken.
At the Composite Clay Studios near Dousman, Noska will be displaying his wonderfully functional stoneware and architectural ceramics while Reinhart presents her beautiful figurative sculptures and paintings, fit for home and gallery. Both artists are associate professors at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater and are active in educating the next generation of potters, painters and sculptors.
The Xn-trix Studios outside Palmyra is the home to Wiken's wandering herds, flocks and packs of metal animals, most native to the Kettle Moraine. In the 1860s restored barn, Rauschke's shop is sure to enchant with his visions in wood.
You may start the tour at any of the five studios listed at right. New this year on the tour are Stephanie Copoulos-Selle, showing her books, prints and paintings at Composite Clay Studio, and watercolor artist Tim Gourdoux at Xn-trix studio.
