GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) – Gainesville Artists are welcoming people to their studios this weekend as part of the Gainesville Fine Arts Association’s Free Artist Studios Tour.

Glassware, photography, collages, paintings and more are available at 14 studio locations around Gainesville. People can discover the work of 20 different artists across the city.

Tour director and photographer Wes Lindberg said this year’s tour means a lot to artists, as many were unable to show their work during the pandemic.

“Every artist is really excited to show off their new work,” Lindberg said. “It’s really inspiring for artists to get that feedback and talk about their process, to work on ideas because it’s been in their heads and now they can talk about it and show the result. “
