4th annual Wood River Valley Studio Tour offers glimpse into artistic process.
When Ketchum artist Suzanne Hazlett spearheaded the first Wood River Valley Studio Tour in 2012, she and co-organizer and fellow artist Mary Williams each made 20 calls a night trying to find local artists to participate.
They thought that would be the easy part—asking artists they knew about to tell them about other local artists they knew. “We were meeting artists throughout the valley who thought they were the only ones,” Hazlett said. Organizing that first tour and establishing a database of local artists in the process was a laborious task.“We had to do a lot of groundwork,” Hazlett said.
