Spring Artist Studio Tours at Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art 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 Chandler's 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. -- Janessa Hilliard
