Blog: Florida Arts Tour features 21 Lake County studios and 29 artists eager to show how they create art

Area art aficionados and the just plain curious will have the chance to visit with an eclectic mix of Lake County artists and watch them create art during the last leg of the ninth annual Off the Beaten Path Florida Arts Tour this weekend.

The free self-guided tour takes place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at 21 professional studios in the Golden Triangle, Leesburg, Umatilla and Weirsdale areas, with stops at area cultural venues, including museums and art centers, too.

In February, the annual region-wide event took art lovers to studios across east and west Volusia County, for visits with 54 artists in 40 studios during two separate dates.In Lake, 29 artists will give demonstrations at their studios and “talk shop,” during the tour. They include watercolor, acrylic, and oil painters; artists who work with clay, metal, paper, wood and mixed media; and jewelers, potters and sculptors.

“Visitors can see what’s going on, how we create our art and the atmosphere of the studio,” said Eustis artist Kace Montgomery, who’s known for her work in clay. “Artists will talk your ear off, if you let them.”
