Visitors to the third annual Artists Studio Tour and Sale in Lake Helen will have the chance to satisfy their curiosity about working artists and their studios, and may have their own artistic ambitions whetted.
The event takes place 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13.
Participants are invited to explore 12 different takes on self-expression at eight stops. They will be able to see artists at work and ask questions. And, there will be opportunities to buy art.
The studio tour has grown since it was started.
“It’s becoming so popular,” said Cheryl Bredbenner, one of the event organizers and a featured artist.
The tours began when some of Lake Helen’s artists got together a few years ago.
“We thought we’d give this a shot,” Bredbenner said. “It’s fun for us and everybody who attends.”
Some of the artists will share studio space for the tour, so there won’t be too many stops. Visitors can start anywhere, and may visit as many or as few artists as they like. There’s plenty of parking at each stop, Bredbenner said.
Here’s the lineup:
• Carriage House Studio, 214 S. Euclid Ave.
Kathy Ivers, painting and mixed media
Victoria “Teddi” Holmes, art of fabrique
• Southern Pine Studio, 149 W. Delaware Ave.
Diane Moore, historic pine-needle basketry with a contemporary flair
• “De” Lightfuls Studio, 145 W. Michigan Ave.

Janice Driggers, fun in fabrics
• Gourd Addict Studio, 560 McCracken Road

Maps will be available at all of the stops, as well as at Lake Helen eateries, where attendees might want to grab lunch during the outing.
The dining spots include Creative Arts Cafe, 493 S. Lakeview Drive; 3 Sisters Ice Cream Parlor, 101 E. Ohio Ave.; and Papa’s Pizza, 336 S. Lakeview Drive.
Signs around town will point visitors to tour stops, also.
