Joplin Regional Artist Coalition is excited to announce the dates and locations for this year’s highly anticipated Studio Tour.  This year’s tour includes 14 artists in seven locations with a variety of mediums. 

A studio tour is a wonderful opportunity for area art lovers to meet artists, see works in progress, learn about processes, and visit actual working studios.  Patrons can start anywhere on the tour and visit each location in any order they wish.  Studio signature cards are available at each location.  The signature cards, once signed and turned in, will be drawn raffle style for the opportunity to win a piece of art donated by each participating artist.  Donated pieces will be on display at Martin Luther School for the duration of the tour.

This year’s tour will be held on November 5th from 10am to 4pm and November 6th from noon to 4pm.  Locations are spread out from Joplin to Carthage to Diamond with a “Home Base” established at Martin Luther School on Connecticut and 26th St.  Maps and signature cards will be available October 1st.  Signature cards are $10 each and can be purchased from any of the participating artists or by contacting JRAC at
