9th Annual On and Off Fredericksburg Road Studio Tour Feb. 20-21
Features More Than 80 Artists in the Biggest Neighborhood Art Tour in the City
Artist Kathleen Trenchard, who has lived in the Woodlawn Lake community for five years, has seen her neighborhood slowly evolve, which she partly attributes to the annual On and Off Fredericksburg Road Studio Tour that offers great exposure to the area, as well as the surrounding neighborhoods.
Visitors can discover for themselves what makes the communities along Fredericksburg Road charming and quaint. “People come to the neighborhoods and once they visit the homes and studios, this area gets a good reputation as a nice place to live,” she said.
Trenchard is one of more than 80 artists who will display their works during the 9th annual On and Off Fredericksburg Road Studio Tour from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 20, and noon to 5 pm Sunday, Feb. 21 in San Antonio’s historic Deco District.
“Fred,” as the event is known, is a self-guided tour of private homes, art studios and galleries of more than 70 artists, including painters, sculptors, photographers and metal smiths.
“It’s the only time of the year these art studios are open in such large numbers in one weekend,” said Kellen McIntyre, executive director of Bihl Haus Arts, which organizes the annual event. “You’ll get to see how artists live and work, and purchase or commission work directly from the artists.”
A full-color catalog in both hardcopy and online versions consisting of a map and information on participating artists and their work is available for $10 advance ($15 Feb 20-21. For more information, visit www.OnandOffFred.org or call Bihl Haus Arts at 210.383.9723.
