Rio Costilla Studio Tour
“We would like to Welcome you to our 19th Annual Rio Costilla Studio Tour!” The Rio Costilla Studio Tour encompasses and showcases work by artists in Costilla and Amalia, New Mexico as well as in Jaroso, Colorado. This is the year to come by and explore the real North of Northern New Mexico, and the Southern most part of the beautiful San Luis Valley. Plan to spend the night in one of the local B&Bs. Head down that dirt road that you’ve always wanted to explore. Discover a new one you’ve never noticed before; the artist studio at the end will blow your mind.
Be brave, be bold! The crumbling adobes with a back drop of the Sangre de Cristos or Mt. Blanca mountains is as real as it gets. Be immersed in the beauty that fuels the artists themselves. “You know you want to!”
You will have the opportunity to see the work of incredible painters, jewelers, wood-workers, and ceramicists among others. You will round a corner and be wowed by wildflower fields in full bloom. These fields paint more than just a pretty picture, bees love them and they are raised for their seed. There will be brochures at the Historic Costilla Plaza, local food vendors, and volunteers to give out information. This is also the 9th year that the Rio Costilla Studio Tour will be hosting the Emerging Artist’s Show, which showcases and supports the young artists of the area. “Pick your favorite for the People’s Choice award!”
Tour dates are Friday, September 8 from 4 PM to 7 PM with music on the Plaza and select studios open on this day only. Saturday and Sunday, September 9 and 10, 2017, from 10AM to 5PM.
