Since 2011, local institutions have been participating in this fall event to promote and support the arts. Visitors have the chance to see original art, speak with artists, delve into the DFW art scene and grow their personal collections if they wish. The Tour itself was made up of 25 artists/exhibits located at 15 stops around Frisco and Frisco Square. The work present included painting, drawing, sculpture, jewelry, print-making, photography, mixed-media, and more.
At The Boulevard at Frisco Square, our very own residents Paige Prater and Meredith Reddard eschewed the ordinary gallery exhibition format for a more interactive event. Paige and Meredith both work with painting as their medium of choice, with soft yet compelling pieces, each in a style totally their own. They set up stations in the clubhouse area at the entrance of the building to create art as a live performance. Visitors were invited in to see their portfolio of completed works on open display, but also to dive into the art creation process by watching these two talented individuals hard at work creating original pieces in real time. They even set up a small working station to encourage any children to work along side them and unleash their inner artist if only for a few minutes.
With a successful Studio Tour under their belts, the staff at The Boulevard is hoping to grow this first-time participation into a long and meaningful relationship with the arts.
