For 13 years a group of artists in the Plano and surrounding art community have hosted this tour of their studios each November. For the first time, this year, PAA has taken on this highly successful event and opened it up to their members.

A special website has been set up with an interactive map that tour goers can use to plot their own tour route. Samples of each artist’s art work is also displayed on the site.

“This is great timing for a gift-buying, shopping opportunity for folks to buy original artwork directly from the artist who created it. By meeting artists and learning more about their creative processes, you gain a deep appreciation for their work. Often prices are especially friendly when dealing directly with the artists,” according to Gene Dillard, President of Plano Art Association.
