Eldorado Studio Tour – 2014

The Eldorado Studio Tour is New Mexico’s largest studio tour showcasing 90 professional artists and artisans. The exhibited work includes painting, ceramics and clay sculpture, drawing, glass, jewelry, photography, and printmaking. Also included are woodworking, digital images, fiber and wearable art, mixed media and recycled art.

Each participating artist donates a percentage of his or her sales from the tour to support selected programs in the community. The Eldorado Arts and Crafts Association (EACA) donates an average of $4500.00 each year to Eldorado community organizations.

In order to better plan your Studio Tour weekend, we invite you to visit the Preview Gallery in The Exhibit Space at La Tienda at Eldorado. You may view a sample of the creative works of our artists and artisans. The preview gallery will be open for two weeks prior to the tour, as well as an hour before the tour begins both days.
