For art lovers who yearn for deeper knowledge about what’s on the walls, Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art has the perfect outside-the-box tour.
Artist Studio Tours are a monthly look at the behind-the-scenes of artists who call the Valley home. On this week’s three-stop tour, check out the studio of vibrant painter Wahid Nahle, whose freely abstract takes on nature offer a break from realist interpretation. Tour-goers will also explore the studio of painter and sculptor Scott McNeill, whose multi-dimensional perspective is reminiscent of the complexities of cubism. The final stop on the four-hour tour is a visit to the Chandler Vision Gallery, currently featuring “The Chandler Portraits” series by Arizona artist Tad Smith.
The tour takes off at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, February 19, at 7374 East Second Street. Tickets are $67 but do not include a lunch, so brown-bagging it is recommended. Visit www.smoca.org or call 480-874-4666.
