Upcoming Show

Muddy Creek Artists Guild Open Studio Tour

Deadline to apply is August 22, 2023

N/A for Studio Tour

TOUR DETAILS
Dates: October 21- and 22, 2023
Times: 11:00 am to 5:00 pm

The Guild's 5th Open Studio Tour will take place this fall at members' studios across South County. You have the option of being a host (at your own studio) or being a guest artist (by joining another artist's studio). 

The Studio Tour is different from the Guild's other shows:  there are no inventory forms to complete, no wall or display cards to provide, and the Guild is not responsible for any sales. In fact, you don't even have to sell your work to be part of the tour.  You can be all about displaying your art, engaging participants in hands-on activities, giving demonstrations, or not! The minimum we ask is that you provide a friendly "open house" atmosphere and engage participants by providing information about your medium, process, and history. Sales, demos, etc., are just icing on the cake!

To Participate:

  • SIGN UP NOW USING THE APPLICATION BUTTON ABOVE! 

  • Pay your show fee by the final deadline - August 22, 2022

  Mail check to:  MCAG Treasurer, c/o Fran Thompson, P.O. Box 111, Mayo, MD 21106


Note:  You must be a fully paid member in order to be in the show.  If you have not paid your dues for 2023, click here to  Pay Dues Here ->

Deadline: 8/22/23
