Cancellation of 2021 Tour

Wood River Valley Studio Tour Supporters

It is with sadness we must announce the decision to cancel the
2021 Wood River Valley Studio Tour.

The uncertainty due to the pandemic has hampered the necessary
preparations to produce a successful event this summer.

The organization’s volunteer leadership is redirecting its efforts toward creating a safe, healthy, and joyful event August 20 – 21, 2022.

We hope you will visit online the websites and social media platforms of artists you admire.

In difficult times, the world finds solace and optimism in art.
We look forward to a safer time when we can connect again soon.

Stay well,
Suzanne

PRESS RELEASE:

June 16, 2021 – Ketchum, Idaho

WOOD RIVER VALLEY STUDIO TOUR, INC. regrettably announces the cancelation of the annual Tour of professional artists’ studios previously scheduled for August 21 – 22, 2021. The nonprofit’s leadership and the hundreds of professional artists who work and live in the greater Sun Valley, Idaho community will look ahead to welcoming visitors to their creative spaces in August of 2022.

The annual weekend-long event typically draws thousands of people to participate in self-guided tours of artists’ working studios. Since 2013, the event has become a celebration of the Valley’s creatives. They welcome visitors and neighbors who cross the thresholds of their art studios located in Bellevue, Hailey, Ketchum, and Sun Valley. Each year visitors mark their calendars to return to the Wood River Valley to participate in this unique cultural learning experience.

Next year, the Wood River Valley Studio Tour will resume its annual event scheduled for August 20 – 21, 2022.

The uncertainty caused by the pandemic continued through Fall 2020 to the present. This uncertainty hampered the necessary preparations to produce a successful event this summer.

The organization’s volunteer leadership is redirecting its efforts toward creating a safe, healthy, and joyful event in 2022. Planning for next year’s return of the valley-wide Tour will begin soon with a renewed focus on rebuilding the volunteer corps and developing the funding required to produce a successful event.
