LANESBORO, Minn. - Lanesboro Area Art Trail announces the opening dates for the second season of their studio open house events. The first of six 2014 Lanesboro Area Art Trail weekends will take place on June 20 -22, 2014. Participating studios will be open Friday, June 20 1 - 6 p.m., Saturday, June 21 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Sunday June 22 11 a.m. - 3 p.m.

During the Lanesboro Area Art Trail, participating studio artists open their studios to the public. Visitors can see the creative spaces where these artists work, watch artists demonstrations, talk with the artists about their processes and shop for unique, one of a kind works of art to take home. Visitors will find paintings, photography, pottery and fiber arts available priced from $4 to $4,000

“The Lanesboro Area Art Trail offers a unique opportunity to see artists in their creative environments” said Sue Pariseau of Sue Pariseau Pottery. “I love participating in the Lanesboro Area Art Trail because it allows me the opportunity to visit with people about my studio, my work and ultimately have a one on one experience with those who enjoy my work. Watching how people interact and connect with my pottery is something I don’t witness when my pots are in a gallery environment and I believe what is learned from that experience helps me make better pots.”

The Lanesboro Area Art Trail is a collaborative event started in 2013 by and representing individual studio artists who create fine arts in and around the Lanesboro Minnesota area. Lanesboro Area Art Trail takes place one weekend per month, June through November.

This event is free to the public. For more information on the event and other event dates please visit www.lanesboroareaarttrail.com or call 651-307-6373.
