Instead of just checking out art, how about getting to the heart of the matter by visiting the centers of creativity?

This Saturday, Sept. 10, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Featherstone Center for the Arts is hosting studio tours of the following artists: Deborah Colter, Stephanie Danforth, Jeri Dantzig, Traeger di Pietro, Anne D. Grandin, Washington Ledesma, Richard Lee, Steve Lohman, Julia Mitchell, Alison Shaw, Lucinda Sheldon, Jenifer Strachan, Jeanne Staples, Wendy Weldon, and Barney Zeitz.

To us an apt cliche, an embarrassment of riches, really.

The tour begins at Featherstone where maps and programs are provided. At the end of the day from 4:30 to 6:30 everyone gets to debrief at a reception at Olga Hirshhorn’s house.

The cost for the tour is $50 and tickets can be purchased at Alley’s General Store in West Tisbury, the Bunch of Grapes Bookstore in Vineyard Haven and at Featherstone.
