Thus began the Blue Coast Artists Fall Tour of Studios, a free event entering its 30th year on October 5 and 6. A South Haven point of interest, it currently includes eight studios between South Haven and Douglas, the tour treats you to a rich exploration of local culture within a connected route cutting through southwest Michigan’s serene rural landscape.
In addition to displaying finished pieces, each studio will offer you opportunities to meet the artist and discover how the work is made in its distinctive environment. Many studios will be serving refreshments as well.
If you aren’t able to see all of the tour’s eight studios, you can still visit them separately at different times of the year. Here’s a glimpse into what makes each artist so singular.
