Page 4 of 4

If you want to visit artist studios. . .

Head to Studio 6 at The Artery, where you'll find a first floor gallery filled with works in various media and an adjacent upstairs space (accessible by stairs only) where several artists including Agustin Vargas, Laura Cohen-Hogan, Walt Wieder, Ann Osgood, and Donna Stegner have studio space dotted with a fun assortment of works in progress.

Also hit Halldor Hjalmarson's studio, which was one of our favorite stops on this year's ASU Ceramics Studio Tour. You'll find plenty of pottery-filled nooks and crannies, a giant outdoor kiln, and an impressive array of pottery pieces in various stages of development.

We had a blast at Hazel and Violet during last year's Art Detour. Lovely folks at the small commercial letterpress printer engaged visitors in making their own coasters and getting a feel for how all those fancy printing contraptions operate.

If you want to shop. . .

Make your way to the Heard Museum for this weekend's Heard Museum Guild Indian Fair & Market, where you'll find traditional and contemporary works by hundreds of artists. It's a cool opportunity to meet several generations of artists, enjoy live music and dance performance, watch art and culinary demonstrations, and more. Hours for the general public are 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, March 7, and 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, March 8. General admission for non-members is $20.

For an eclectic assortment of creative works by local artists, wander over to MADE Art Boutique in Roosevelt Row, where you can enjoy a retrospective of Eye Lounge artist and alumni works in the adjacent gallery space. Then head to Practical Art, where you'll also find jewelry, furniture, kitchen wares, clothing and more -- plus the current exhibition of paintings by Lee Berger exploring our relationship to our surroundings.
