Artists, please click HERE for the Artisan Road Trip Application.
As a participating artist, you will offer a rare glimpse into your
studio practice, demonstrate your craft in a personal way, and also
exhibit and sell your work. This event is a powerful marketing and
networking opportunity. Not only do you personally connect with a
wider audience, you also become familiar with other artists working
and creating in your local area.

The Artisans Road Trip, originally organized by and for artists nearly two decades ago, is a self-guided studio tour reaching Emmet, Palo Alto, Dickinson, Clay, Buena Vista, and Cherokee counties.
In 2022 the organization of the event moved to the Pearson Lakes Art Center to continue this tradition of sharing the creativity of Northwest Iowa and continuing the A.R.T. organization’s original mission to promote a venue for established artisans to demonstrate their skills, exhibit and sell their original fine art via a self-guided studio tour through scenic Northwest Iowa, thereby encouraging education, diversity, tourism, economic growth, and art appreciation.
Using the A.R.T. Directory, visitors are invited to make Northwest Iowa a weekend road-trip destination – traveling scenic byways and back roads looking for one-of-a-kind art treasures, education, and experiences.
