The Sedona Visual Artists' Coalition (SVAC) is proud to announce the complete roster of artists and sponsors participating in its annual Open Studios Tour for 2012. The artist lineup includes a number of new artists who are opening their studios to the public for the first time, along with many venerable favorites from past years. All will be welcoming the public to visit their working spaces, to enjoy refreshments, discussions, and demonstrations, and to see their latest creations.

The studio tour season begins with a weekend-long, self-guided tour on May 5 and 6 (10 a.m.-5 p.m. each day), during which all of the participating studios will be open to visitors. Following that kick-off weekend, most studios will continue to welcome visitors for the rest of the year, either by appointment or during specific tour days scheduled individually by each studio.

The participating artists, and their media, include: Julie Ronning Talbot (Watercolors), Fran McNamara (Mixed Media), Jim Peterson (Photography), Mary Fisher (Mixed Media), Sandy Tracey (Acrylics), Joan Roberts (Jewelry), Margaret Anderson (Fiber), Ann Crossland (Stone Sculpture), Csaba L. Martonyi (Mixed Media), Grazina Wade (Photography), Lou Cohen (Fiber Clay), Candace Copeland (Jewelry), Alisa Gabrielle (Sculpture), Georgia Michalicek (Photography), Cher Norville (Oils), Patricia Priolo (Mixed Media), Susan B. Snodgrass (Mixed Media), Holly Stedman (Stained Glass), Joanie Wolter (Mixed Media), Claudia L. Cooke (Mixed Media), Skip Fox (Mixed Media), Beverly Gilroy (Ceramics), Komala U. Rohde (Jewelry), Nancy Ruby (Oils), Jerry Buley, PhD (Photography), Mary Lois Brown (Oils), M.L. Coleman (Oils), and W."Pete" Jennerjahn (Mixed Media).

Each of these artists will be available to greet the public and discuss their artistic aims and influences. Visitors will gain insight into artistic practices and techniques by seeing art works at various stages of completion. The diversity of style and medium that will be on view during the event is a testament to the vitality of Sedona's artistic community.

An event like the Studio Tour and Season is a large and complex undertaking, requiring many resources and many hours of organizing and legwork. SVAC is therefore very grateful to the many businesses and individuals who have stepped forward to help make the project possible. These generous sponsors include:

• Canyon Outfitters

• Coffee Pot Restaurant

• Cucina Rustica

• Stone Nation Rising - D. Ann Crossland

• Dahl & DiLuca Ristorante Italiano

• Dave and Donna Clark

• Favorite Clothing Company

This year's tour weekend will include a number of students working under SVAC's Mentor Program, coordinated by Patty Miller, the Director of a local art gallery. The Mentor Program includes students from Desert Star Elementary School, West Sedona School, Red Rock High School, and Sedona Sunrise Adult Center. "The Mentor Program is an equally wonderful opportunity for the mentors and the students," Miller observes. "During the tour, the public will be able to see how mentors interact with their students to impart knowledge of the artistic process. They'll also be the first to see some exciting new works by the artists of tomorrow."
