4+ Towns 4 Art, founded by Haddon Township fiber artist Jennifer Talarico, presents the second annual Open Studio Tour. Showcasing artists in four towns in 2013, the Studio Tour has doubled in size for 2014. Eight towns are highlighted — Barrington, Collingswood, Haddonfield, Haddon Heights, Haddon Township, Merchantville, Oaklyn, and Pennsauken — with 25 artists participating. Studio disciplines include painting, ceramics, fiber arts, drawing/illustration, photography, sculpture, mosaic, collage, leather work, and book art.
4+ Towns 4 Art is a celebration of visual art in the South Jersey community. With a mission to give local, independent artists a platform from which to share their creative process with the community in which they live, 4+ Towns 4 Art intends to encourage the financial support of those artists by presenting their work for sale directly out of their studios.
Talarico says, “One of the joys I got out of last year’s tour was to see the artists’ enthusiasm for sharing their spaces with the public. One of them even had an addition built onto her back yard shed. Naturally she wanted to enlarge her work space, but it was also important to her to make it more accessible. The Studio Tour is every bit as inspiring for the artists as it is for the public!”
Addresses of participating artists:
The Second Annual Open Studio Tour is free & open to the public. All members of the community are welcome to visit the studios on Saturday, April 5, 2014, from 11am to 5pm. Artists will be demonstrating and displaying their creations. There will be an artist reception following the Tour at: EilandArts Gallery, 21 S. Centre St., Merchantville from 5:30pm – 8pm.
