Along with a coveted Cookie Tour, rowdy Rock All Night Tour and scenic Garden Tour, Lawrenceville is also the birthplace of the homegrown Artists’ Studio Tour. Together, these kinds of community events spotlight Lawrenceville’s evolution as a mecca for artists, designers, musicians and makers, while allowing residents and visitors alike to enjoy the neighborhood’s diverse cultural and commercial offerings in inventive new ways.

What began 11 years ago as a group of 10 artist friends, has evolved into a thriving community of more than 45 creatives. Celebrating the event’s 11th annual gathering, the neighborhood-based event will again swing open the many studio doors of Lawrenceville for a free day of creative engagement open to all ages.

Tour-goers will step into 19 professional studio environments to discover a wide range of artistic practices, get a behind-the-scenes look at new work as it’s being created on-site in Lawrenceville and meet the artists who call the neighborhood home.

The largest tour to date, this year’s expanded edition will feature 49 artists, such as painters, sculptors, jewelry designers, weavers and others. Stops include everyone from Ton Pottery, Gerbe Glass and Sapling Press, to Revival Print Company, garbella and Partly Cloudy Studio.

Over at Radiant Hall Studios, located at 4514 Plummer St., more than 20 artists will share their creative habitats, while the Icehouse Studios at 100 43rd St. will showcase the work of two fashion designers.
